Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cybersecurity is a relatively young field integrating many disciplines, such as ICT, management, law, ethics, psychology, and sociology. Cyberspace, as a virtual world combining the spectrum of phenomena, goes beyond the mere transposition of the physical world into the world of machines—it is a creation in which other principles and laws operate than those that are our physical environment; for example, Newton’s dynamics are not directly applied. No less, cyberspace penetrates the real world, and the key issue is to ensure IT security. This type of activity consists in the security of the operation of computer systems and ICT networks in the conditions of various types of threats, the scale of which increases with the proliferation of mobile devices.

This Special Issue is devoted to promoting the investigation of the latest research in cybersecurity algorithms as the key to building a secure cyberspace.

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 papers will be 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.
