Cybersecurity: Key Journals & Proceedings

Key Publications in Cybersecurity

This page provides links to various journals and conference proceedings on topics related to computer and information security.  The list, which has been culled from several sources, is by no means comprehensive or exclusive.  Please help me to make it better and let me know if there are publications that should or should not be here.


ACM Transactions on Privacy and Security (formerly TISSEC)

Devoted to the study, analysis, and application of information and system security and privacy.

IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing

The purpose of TDSC is to publish papers in dependability and security, including the joint consideration of these issues and their interplay with system performance.

IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security

Covers the sciences, technologies, and applications relating to information forensics, information security, biometrics, surveillance and systems applications that incorporate these features.

Journal of Cryptology

The official journal of the International Association for Cryptologic Research which provides a forum for publication of original results in all areas of modern information security

Computers & Security

The official journal of Technical Committee 11 (computer security) of the International Federation for Information Processing.

Designs, Codes, and Cryptography

Designs, Codes and Cryptography provides a forum for high quality papers of both a theoretical and a practical nature which bridge design theory, coding theory, and cryptography, encouraging interaction between them.

International Journal of Information Security

The International Journal of Information Security is an English language periodical on research in information security which offers prompt publication of important technical work, whether theoretical, applicable, or related to implementation.

IET Information Security

IET Information Security publishes original research papers in numerous areas of information security and cryptography.

Journal of Computer Security

The Journal of Computer Security presents research and development results of lasting significance in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, and application of secure computer systems

Journal of Computer Virology and Hacking Techniques

The Journal of Computer Virology and Hacking Techniques is an independent academic and technical journal dedicated to viral and antiviral computer technologies and hacking techniques (software and hardware).

Journal of Cybersecurity

Journal of Cybersecurity publishes accessible articles describing original research in the inherently interdisciplinary cyber domain. Journal of Cybersecurity is premised on the belief that computer science-based approaches, while necessary, are not sufficient to tackle cybersecurity challenges. Instead, scholarly contributions from a range of disciplines are needed to understand the varied aspects of cybersecurity.

Information and Computer Security

Information and Computer Security (ICS) contributes to the advance of knowledge directly related to the theory and practice of the management and security of information and information systems.
