Special Issue Information
As internet and information technology is evolving, our everyday life is becoming more and more digital, connecting our physical world with cyberspace. In the emerging cyberphysical systems, cryptography plays a critical role for harmoniously connecting the physical and the cyber world. On one hand, traditional cryptographic algorithms lay the foundations for building robust and reliable systems. On the other hand, quantum resistant cryptography plays a key role to future-proof the connected world. Ultimately, both traditional and post-quantum cryptography are the pillars for establishing trustworthy relationships in emerging and future systems.
This Special Issue provides a broad overview of hot topics and open issues by covering areas that include many different theoretical and technological aspects involved in traditional and post-quantum cryptography.
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum cryptography;
- Quantum key distribution;
- Code-based, lattice-based, hash-based, isogeny-based, multivariate cryptography;
- Standardization efforts in quantum resistant cryptography;
- Attacks on post-quantum cryptosystems;
- Security models for post-quantum cryptography;
- Physical layer authentication for cyberphysical systems;
- Fuzzy cryptography, PUFs, and biometrics;
- Security and privacy techniques for energy, transportation, healthcare, and medical systems;
- TPM and TEE security;
- Cryptographic solutions in supply chain security;
- Hardware implementations of cryptographic algorithms;
- Side channels and fault attacks for cyberphysical systems;
- Deanonymization and cryptanalysis;
- Lightweight cryptography for the IoT and sensors;
- Blockchain and cryptocurrencies;
- Homomorphic encryption;
- Security and anonymity for 5G/6G mobile networks;
- Verifiable credentials and attribute-based credentials;
- Searchable encryption and privacy preserving data mining for cloud technologies;
- Machine learning and cryptography.

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. 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) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 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.
