Today, the industrial internet, smart grids, smart homes, military applications, smart water networks, and intelligent transportation are infrastructure systems that connect our world more than we ever thought possible. The common vision of such systems is typically associated with the Internet of Things (IoT), where through the use of sensors, the entire physical infrastructure is closely connected with information and communication technologies, and where intelligent monitoring and management can be achieved via the usage of networked-embedded devices. Sensors allow all “things” to communicate directly with each sensor to share vital information, allowing us to monitor everything and leading to better services. Trillion-scale IoT devices including sensors and actuators are predicted to be installed in “things” such as machines, humans, vehicles, buildings, and environments in the near future. Unfortunately, this evolution of IoT devices has attracted the attention of cybercriminals who attempt to attack the defence of these devices to carry out malicious activities. Compromising the restricted resources of IoT devices opens the door to a possible attack on the end-users, including unauthorised access and exploitation of personal information. The promise of the IoT is based on the security connectivity, and when connected with large collections of connected devices, significant advantages can accrue. The success of these connected devices mainly depends on the network of the IoT architecture, with the importance of the security techniques applied in it, where issues related to security and privacy are essential.
The Special Issue at hand aims to promote the dissemination of the latest methodologies, protocols, policies, frameworks, solutions, and case studies of IoT security and privacy issues in remote sensing.
Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of IoT and cyber physical systems are invited to discuss state-of-the-art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies, architecture, algorithms, techniques, experience reports, and tools for handling information flows from/to a number of devices.
Possible topics of interest in this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Access control mechanism in IoT
- Privacy-preserving computation in IoT
- Trust and reputation issues in IoT
- Security architecture for IoT
- Key management in fog computing
- Intrusion detection in IoT
- Security and privacy in heterogeneous IoT
- Secure and privacy-preserving data mining and aggregation in IoT applications
- Cross‐domain trust management in smart networks
- Secure authentication of IoT devices
- MAC layer security protocols for IoT applications
- IoT security mechanisms targeting application layer protocols

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. Future Internet 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.
