Blockchain and cryptographic technologies have been acknowledged as being of utmost significance for security, privacy, and a wide range of uses within cyberspace. The widespread use of blockchain and cryptographic techniques has created difficulties for the creation of sophisticated methods with high security and minimal overheads. Therefore, in this Specuial Issue, we seek efficient and secure blockchain approaches as well as light-weight cryptographic methods with verifiable security. We pay significant attention to the use of advanced mathematical techniques and concepts to create sophisticated blockchain consensus protocols that do not rely heavily on energy usage and also the use of information theory and coding results to create advanced symmetric key cryptography primitives.

Manuscript Submission Information
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). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
