Call For Papers

Being the dawn of 5G networks, and the era of the Internet-of-Things, wireless and mobile networking has become increasingly ubiquitous. In this landscape, security and privacy turn into decisive factors. That is, the mobile and wireless ecosystem is an ideal playground for many perpetrators: (i) handheld devices are used for critical tasks, such as e-commerce, bank transactions, payments, application purchases, as well as social interaction, (ii) such devices uniquely identify their users and store sensitive and detailed information about them, and (iii) despite all their sophistication, native security mechanisms of mobile operating systems can be bypassed, and several wireless interfaces and protocols have been proven to be vulnerable to attack. As the attacker is given so many alternative entry points for penetration, the creation of assaults against the user and the underlying systems have augmented, both in amount, as well as in matters of complexity. It is, therefore, imperative that new and advanced security and privacy-preserving measures be deployed.

To cope with the aforementioned challenges, this Special Issue is dedicated to the security and privacy aspects of mobile networks, wireless communications, as well as their apps. Particularly, apart from network and link layer security, focus is on the security and privacy of mobile software platforms and the increasingly differing spectrum of mobile or wireless apps. We encourage original and high-quality contributions, addressing both theoretical and systems research.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

- Attacks on MAC layer, Network layer, Security infrastructure, Mobile OS
- Users' awareness to security solutions for mobile devices
- Security and privacy considerations for the emerging field of Internet-of-Things
- Intrusion and malware detection in mobile ecosystems
- Methods for locating the source of attacks
- Privacy and security issues for wearable devices
- Usable mobile security and privacy
- Wireless and mobile privacy and anonymity
- BYOD security
- Location privacy
- Cellular network security and fraud
- Mobile botnets
- Biometric user authentication and continuous authentication for smart devices

Papers with a strong cryptographic background will not be considered as part of this Special Issue.


*Papers are published upon acceptance, regardless of the Special Issue publication date.*

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the fields of security and privacy, as well as their suitability to the Special Issue, and for their overall quality. The submitted papers have to describe original research which has not been published nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Guest Editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and authors will be promptly informed in such cases.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the Special Issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 500 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
