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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging concept which refers to billions of interconnected (non-human) information sources, also named smart objects, typically equipped with sensors or actuators, a tiny microprocessor, a communication interface, and a power source. Among the most notable challenges that building interconnected smart objects brings about, there are standardization and interoperability. The IPSO Alliance promotes the use of IP as the standard for interoperability for smart objects. As billions of smart objects are expected to come to life and IPv4 addresses have eventually reached depletion, IPv6 has been identified as a candidate for smart objects communication. The protocol stack that smart objects will implement will try to match classical Internet hosts in order to make it feasible to create the so-called Extended Internet, that is the aggregation of the Internet with the IoT. The latter faces many security issues coming from the very nature of smart objects and the use of standard protocols. This paper provides an overview of the security challenges at network, transport and application layers together with the proposed algorithms and solutions to cope with them.
Keywords: security; cryptography; Internet of Things; smart objects; secure communication protocols; secure data aggregation
