Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chaotic systems have long been integrated into security-related applications. Due to their deterministic nature, highly complex dynamics, and sensitivity to initial conditions and parameter changes, they constitute an efficient tool for masking information.

The aim of this Special Issue is to explore recent trends and developments in chaos-based encryption schemes. Contributions can address any type of chaotic system and all applications related to information masking and security. Review articles focused on specific applications or methods are also welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Continuous, discrete time, and fractional order chaotic systems;
  • Different chaos synchronization and antisynchronization techniques;
  • Chaotic systems with hidden attractors;
  • Secure communications;
  • Signal encryption;
  • Random number generation;
  • Entropy-based cryptography;
  • Message authentication;
  • Digital signature;
  • Hardware implementations of encryption designs;
  • Any other security-related engineering application.

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. 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.
