Mobile computing is an emerging yet revolutionary technology. It has started changing the ways people live and work. With the rapid growth of mobile and related services, security and privacy in mobile networks and systems have become increasingly critical issues in the research realm of communications and networks security. The introduction of mobility in existing computer systems and networks has changed the security perspectives and measures, consequently affecting how crime related digital evidence is retrieved, processed, and presented in this environment.

The International Special Section on Security and Forensics of Mobile Multimedia (IWSFMM 2020), aptly named for its goals, is a research special section organized with the objective of bringing together top researchers working on the intersection of the of mobile computing as well as the security and forensics of multimedia to present and discuss their latest research results and ideas, thereby promoting the development and the evolution of this combined body of knowledge. All submissions enabling cross‐pollination of ideas on multimedia security and forensics in the mobile environment are welcome. IWSFMM 2020 encourages and accepts novel, innovative, and previously unpublished works.
