Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce this Special Issue on “Next Generation Networks and Systems Security”.

This Special Issue aims to present new research, as well as to highlight the latest results and current challenges, with respect to next-generation networks and systems security and privacy. In a highly evolving environment, where different technologies such as IoT networks, blockchain technologies, 5G Networks, Wi-Fi networks, cloud computing, etc. are being interconnected and expanded, new threats for security and privacy are constantly appearing. To address them, advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning, big data analysis, post-quantum cryptography, and privacy-enhancing technologies seem to have a crucial role.

This Special Issue seeks original unpublished papers in this area, focusing on novel system architecture designs, new detection techniques, new results on cryptography (including post-quantum cryptography as well as privacy-enhancing cryptography), either theoretical or practical, as well as on experimental studies\technical reports. Hardware attacks and defenses are also within the scope of the issue. Review/survey papers, as well as papers focusing on addressing/analyzing relevant legal requirements on cybersecurity and privacy, from an engineering perspective, are also highly encouraged.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Electronics.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Network is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
