The great progress in security and computing has been made possible thanks to the applications of advanced soft computing approaches, and other algorithmic techniques, such as artificial intelligence, bio-inspired computation, etc. Recently, such techniques have had a great importance, especially in areas of intelligent and secure analysis of a great amount of data orginating from the Cloud, the Internet of Things, and different sources connected with pervasive and mobile computing. The possibility of development of such new technologies will depend on many different factors like new computational paradigms, which implement innovative security models for secure communication and pervasive computation. It may also depend on proper analysis of a wider context around the systems, and methods providing a high level of security and confidentiality of transmitted data. However, one of the most important aspect, which will also have an infuence on modern security protocols, is appplication biometric patterns, and bio-inspired computational models, which allow to create new branches in personalized cryptography.
Such subjects, as well as a number of others, like innovative and secure applications, as well as ways of using innovative biometric and personalized protocols and computational models to develop new solutions in the field of secure communication protocols, wireless transmissions, or pervasive computing, will form the subject of a Special Issue on “Biometric and Bio-inspired Approches in Cryptography” in 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 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.
