On a general scale, doubtlessly system security has become a major challenge in modern society. Along with the enormous spreading of applications of technologies such as biometrics, cloud computing and Internet-of-Things (IoT), at the same time, the range and intensity of attacks to such systems has dramatically increased. Consequently, information technology (IT) security as the discipline of actively defending against such threats is a very active and flourishing domain in computer sciences, in which many different strategies have emerged over the years as how to improve the way in which we protect vital systems and sensitive data throughout the broad variety of technologies. The common goals in IT security research are the preservation of confidentiality, authenticity, integrity and privacy of information during the processing of data in the presence of existence of threats such as targeted attacks.
