Sensors (MDPI) 2020 : Special Issue on Security, Trust and Privacy in New Computing Environments
Call For Papers
The dynamics of existing computing models and computing environments change frequently, with the rapid development of mobile computing, big data, and artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things (IoT), blockchain technology, and many other large-scale computing environments. For example, in IoT and big data environments, many traditional solutions and tools are not suitable. Migrating conventional systems to the new computing environment may cause many unexpected mistakes and errors, resulting in an increasing number of security, trust, and privacy issues. With the popularity of blockchain technology, decentralized solutions are also leading to big changes in current computing environments. Many blockchain-based systems like PKI, audit systems, and insurance systems are under construction. The adoption of blockchain has the potential to help solve the issue of data integrity and transparency.
This Special Issue focuses on all security, trust, and privacy issues, and all efforts to investigate and address these challenges in current new computing environments.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
User authentication in new computing environments
Risk analysis and intrusion response
Identity and access management in IoT
Measurement of IoT privacy leakage
Mobile cloud security
New cryptographic techniques
Security and privacy in big data
Blockchain in new computing environments
IoT security and privacy
Usable security in new computing environments
Cyber intelligence techniques

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
