Special Issue in Sensors: Cybersecurity and Privacy in Smart Cities
The European Commission’s initiative for establishing a European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and a Network of National Cybersecurity Coordination Centres seeks to develop competences in order to deal with the complex cyber threat landscape. This has led to the investment of almost 64 million Euros, which was allocated to funding four pilot projects that will assist in building capacities in the form of a network of competency centres . A common denominator across these pilots is the research of cybersecurity technologies for different sectors and verticals, such as finance, maritime, healthcare, energy and so forth. At the same time, the proliferation of enabling technologies such as IoT and 5G has given rise to a complex ecosystem of Cyber Physical Systems, where threat actors can construct attack vectors covering both the cyber and physical domains. This, in turn, results in the increase of an organisation’s or smart infrastructure’s attack surface, enabling the transfer of risk between the cyber and the physical domain. Typically, cyber risks focusing on the information and data require security controls, whereas for the physical domain, we refer to studying safety aspects.
This Special Issue invites original research papers that showcase the complexity and diversity of cyberphysical systems security and introduce new approaches for securing such environments.
Relevant topics include but are not limited to:
- Digital twins for cybersecurity assessments
- Threat intelligence for cyberphysical systems
- Incident response in CPS environments
- Cyber range technologies
- Crowdsourcing and crowdsensing for cyber security
- Threat modelling in CPS
- Security and safety protocols for CPS
- Security in mobile CPS

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 1000 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.
