Special Issue Information
Network security is a multidisciplinary area in computer science and engineering, while cryptography—which evolved from applied mathematics—constitutes the core technology to ensure network security. To protect information systems against potential attacks, network security and cryptography mainly focus on the development and implementation of security mechanisms. At present, around five billion people around the world are connected through networks to enable the exchange and sharing of information of all kinds, making security and privacy serious issues in various applications. Additionally, rapidly evolving computing paradigms and computing environments such as edge computing, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, metaverse, and other large-scale computing environments have made the security of information in storage and during transmission crucial in our daily digital lives.
With the developments of computing and communication technologies, new security challenges emerge constantly. Attacks of all kinds, such as hacking, impersonation, traffic analysis, etc., cause devastating damages to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. To address such new threats, cryptography algorithms and technologies need to be enriched with new elements and developments in mathematics such as number theory and graph theory. In the meantime, new security countermeasures can be proposed on the basis of advancements in cryptography.
This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the theories and the recent trends in the development of network security as well as the application of cryptography to counter security and privacy problems. We are soliciting contributions (research articles) covering a broad range of topics on frontiers in network security and cryptography, including but not limited to the following:
- new cryptographic primitives evolved from mathematics;
- cryptographic protocols for network security;
- new cryptographic techniques for mobile networks;
- new authentication techniques for network security;
- network security with symmetry cryptographic techniques;
- network security with asymmetry cryptographic techniques;
- security and privacy in Internet of Things;
- security and privacy in blockchain;
- security and privacy in big data;
- security and privacy in cloud and edge computing;
- explicable machine learning theories for network security;
- hardware security attacks and countermeasures.
