Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Internet of Things (IoT) applications has been deployed in a wide variety of critical infrastructure and applications ranging from transportation, healthcare, and supply chain. While IoT brings a number of benefits including convenience and efficiency, it also introduces a number of emerging threats. With the emergence of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), there is a growing need for access control and data protection. Biometric-based authentication is promising for IoT due to its convenient nature and lower susceptibility to attacks. Additionally, machine learning and deep learning techniques are delivering a promising solution to biometric systems and to increase the accuracy and plays a decisive role for presentation attack detection.

The goal of this special issue is to solicit high quality contributions on: (i) investigating the usage of deep learning and biometric systems in the context of IoT applications; (ii) novel techniques in biometric deep fakes and digital data forensics, particularly by exploiting, but not limited to, deep learning approaches.

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
