Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The Internet, and its related technologies and services, has undeniably affected the everyday lives of millions of people. We now depend upon it for day-to-day communications in both our business and personal lives, and are becoming ever more reliant upon the wider applications that it supports. However, having been designed with little attention towards security, the Internet is still by no means secure, and offers many opportunities for attack.
This special issue invites papers addressing and advancing security-related themes in the Internet context, including the issues that increasingly arise as a result of mobile and wireless access. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the core technologies and protocols that can provide protection at the network level, through to new measures that can be taken to safeguard the applications that run on top of this infrastructure. The scope also includes issues relating to the use and governance of the Internet, such as censorship, surveillance and privacy.
