IEEE Transactions on Reliability

Special Section on Enterprise Cybersecurity and Threat Intelligence at Scale

Call for Papers


Today's enterprise is by default connected in all aspects. The interactions with customers, businesses, and computer networks have created global-scale business opportunities and security risks for enterprises. Therefore, enterprises are in dire need of solutions that would maximize business opportunities while keeping the risk of security threats low. Unfortunately, the prevalence of security incidents indicates that existing security mechanisms have reached their limits in dealing with security risks at scale. A higher-level of automation and intelligence needs to be integrated into the security mechanisms to deal with the security threats faced by the enterprises today effectively. Meanwhile, classic fault tolerance mechanisms are also challenged by the scale of today's enterprise and the presence of malicious actors. New perspectives are needed for understanding how we can effectively manage the security risks faced by today's enterprise while maximizing the business strength at the same time.

In this special section, we solicit high-quality submissions related to enterprise cybersecurity and threat intelligence. In particular, we especially welcome papers that tackle problems pertaining to the asymmetric cyber warfare faced by the enterprises and the undesirable expansion of attack surfaces as we increase the scale of business.


We welcome submissions in, but not limited to, the following topic areas:

  • Cyber threats and risk analysis
  • Threat intelligence
  • Automated incident response
  • Decentralized finance security
  • Security issues of decentralized blockchain applications
  • Artificial intelligence/machine learning-based security
  • Moving target defense for enterprises
  • Cloud security
  • Zero-trust architecture
  • Cyber-physical systems security
  • Advanced methods for error detection, fault tolerance, and debugging
  • Software quality, metrics, and measurements, estimation, and prediction of quality/reliability
  • Dependability, survivability, and resilience of software systems
  • Systems (hardware and software) reliability engineering
  • Productivity evaluation and improvement
  • Services reliability engineering
  • Supporting tools and automation
  • Industry best practices

Submission Information

We welcome high-quality submissions that are original work, not published, and not currently submitted elsewhere. We also encourage extensions to conference papers, unless prohibited by copyright, if there is a significant difference in technical content. Improvements such as adding a new case study or including a description of additional related studies do not satisfy this requirement. A description explaining the differences between the conference paper and the journal submission is required. The overlap between each submission and other articles, including the authors' own papers and dissertations, should be less than 30%.

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer-review process and must conform to the double-column, the single-spaced format of printed articles in the IEEE Transactions on Reliability with all figures and tables embedded in the paper, rather than listed at the end or in the appendix. Refer to the special guidelines posted at
