Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is a technology that has the potential to fundamentally change the defensive strategy against cyberattacks by building a security knowledge system to respond to intelligent cyberattacks preemptively. Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) organizes and shares threat information and is driving innovation in security technologies for networks and systems through threat identification, intelligent threat analysis, attacker profiling, and kill chain responses. Therefore, when applied well, threat intelligence can help security officers and teams to defend against an ever-more sophisticated threat landscape before, during, and after an attack. That is, by studying adversaries and understanding their strategies and objectives, organizations can build more effective and more robust cyber-defenses. In recent years, this CTI technology has been expanding into infrastructure environments such as SCADA, IoT, and heterogeneous networks, contributing to advances in the confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, and scalability of systems.
This Special Issue aims to cover the latest techniques in all aspects and challenges, including the construction, operation, and sharing of cyber-threat intelligence systems. Theoretical and practical developments in the implementation and operation of cyber threat intelligence, the latest technical reviews, and surveys on CTI systems are welcomed. The papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of their quality and relevance to the theme of this Special Issue, with only the best high-quality papers selected for publication. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Design and analysis of CTI system architecture;
- New operation strategy for CTI;
- Data representation model for CTI;
- Data sharing model for CTI;
- Data analysis methodology for CTI;
- Machine learning techniques and tools for CTI;
- Kill-chain model and application for CTI;
- Design and analysis of new evaluation method for CTI;
- Automated and smart tools for data collection, feature classification, and forensic analysis;
- Integration of incident response and digital forensic;
- Application of cyber security and intelligence ;
- Reliability and risk analysis methodology for CTI;
- Cyberattack trend analysis model and system.

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 monthly 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 1500 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.
