Decentralized Security and Privacy Protection


Human social behaviour inspired user collaboration and network anomaly detection for security enhancement and privacy protection will be explored. Collaborative trust management and monitoring can be an effective way in decentralized network to prevent potential security threats and privacy concerns from loss of data control by unwanted data sharing. In this research Theme, the policy, ethical and legal aspects will be integrated into the relevant designs for communications signaling and protocols. Our proposed decentralized security techniques will be achieved through in-depth understanding of behaviour of a particular user through collaboration of a group of trusted users.
