Secure embedded systems are used in an always increasing number of personal, industrial and government applications, such as smart cards, e-business, mobile communications, transportations, medical/health devices, sensor networks, internet of things, etc. The security of these systems is a major societal and economic issue. High security level is required in those systems and is achieved using strong cryptographic solutions. Then cryptographic hardware is a key for high performances, low energy consumption and high security.
This Special Issue on “Cryptographic Hardware for Embedded Systems” is intended to present new architectures and design methods for ASICs (application specific integrated circuits), FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) and SoCs (System on Chips) devices applied to all aspects of hardware cryptography.
High quality technical articles will be reviewed by top experts in the field. Authors are invited to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue in the list of relevant topics below (but not limited to). Submitted papers with hardware implementation results and detailed comparisons to state-of-the-art solutions are highly encouraged.

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 1400 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.
