Special Issue "Public Key Cryptography"
A special issue of Cryptography (ISSN 2410-387X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2018)
Public key cryptography is a major branch of modern cryptography and forms the foundation of computer and network security, as well as electronic commerce. It is a fantastic and fast evolving research area. New public key cryptographic technologies and systems, such as identity-based, attributed-based and functional cryptosystems, have been introduced in recently years to address the security issues imposed by emerging computing paradigms, such as cloud computing. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of challenging problems to be solved in this area, such as the development of secure public key cryptosystems that are quantum-safe and practical.
This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers to publish high-quality and original research papers presenting the recent development and state-of-the-art solutions on all the aspects of public key cryptography.
The topics of interest to this Special Issue cover the scope of the 23rd Australasian Conference on Information Security and Privacy (https://ssl.informatics.uow.edu.au/acisp2018/index.html).
Extended versions of papers presented at ACISP 2018 are sought, but this call for papers is also fully open to all those who wish to contribute by submitting a relevant research manuscript.

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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cryptography is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
