In recent years, with the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, a user can easily process multimedia content using various deep neural networks, e.g., CNN and GAN, and accordingly pose a serious challenge to personal privacy protection and information security. Correspondingly, AI-based multimedia security and protection research has been attracting a lot of interest. In general, multimedia protection and detection issues can always be regarded as a symmetrical signal processing model. Secret data are embedded into multimedia files via a series of signal processing methods to achieve covert communication, copyright protection, and authentication, whereas the corresponding detection technique is an inverse technology, which is mainly to discover the presence of secret data or the presence of illegal tampering behavior. Remarkable works have emerged around this theme in recent years. Nevertheless, a series of problems still exist in the relevant fields, especially in social multimedia forensics, steganography and steganalysis, digital watermarking, network privacy protection, AI security, etc.
This Special Issue aims to contribute state-of-the-art original research outcomes toward AI-based multimedia security and protection and provide advanced methods or engineering applications for researchers and engineers. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and relevance to the topics of this Special Issue.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Symmetry theory of information hiding;
- Steganography and steganalysis;
- Digital watermarking in multimedia;
- Symmetry issues in reversible data hiding;
- Fake multimedia forensics and anti-forensics;
- AI-based multimedia generation and detection;
- AI-based deepfake videos and detection;
- AI-based multimedia authentication;
- Symmetry/asymmetry theory in multimedia encryption;
- Symmetry and heuristic in multimedia protection;
- Privacy and security issues in multimedia cloud;
- Symmetry and multimedia protection applications.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
