Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multimedia communications play a significant role in various areas of present-day, society including politics, economics, defense, healthcare, business, and entertainment. The five core building blocks of multimedia are text, image, audio, video, and animation. Multimedia, however, is susceptible to security and privacy attacks. The communication of multimedia over wired and/or wireless channels, including the Internet, exacerbates the security and privacy challenges of multimedia. Therefore, it is imperative to secure multimedia data by providing confidentiality, integrity, identity or ownership, and privacy.

This Special Issue targets security and privacy topics in multimedia. This Special Issue invites original research articles and reviews that relate to security and privacy attacks on multimedia, including artificial intelligence (AI)-based attacks, encryption techniques for multimedia, steganography, digital watermarking, digital rights management, multimedia authentication, and AI-based attack mitigation techniques. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Multimedia encryption;
  • Homomorphic encryption;
  • Multimedia authentication;
  • Steganography;
  • Steganalysis;
  • Digital watermarking;
  • Digital rights management;
  • Multimedia forensics;
  • Biometric security;
  • Quantum-based multimedia cryptosystems;
  • AI-based multimedia security;
  • Fake multimedia generation and detection;
  • Adversarial attacks and defenses;
  • AI-based deepfake videos generation and detection;
  • Multimedia privacy
