Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML), and Internet of Things (IoT) have become important and active research directions, which are believed to be future technologies. However, there are many concerns relating to security and privacy and efficiency in deploying those technologies for real-life applications.

This Special Issue aims to attract high-quality submissions for efficient cryptographic protocols in both theoretical and experimental research on the security of blockchain, AI/ML, and IoT, particularly (but not limited to) efficient protocols that achieve post-quantum security.

As part of the Special Issue, we will invite the three best papers from the 23rd Information Security Conference (ISC 2020).

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Blockchain security
  • Privacy-preserving techniques for AI/ML
  • IoT security
  • Post-quantum cryptography
  • Side-channel analysis
  • Quantum and classical cryptanalysis
  • Implementations and practical security concerns
