Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A protection of information in times of widespread use of electronic devices is a huge challenge. There is a lot of talk and writing about cybersecurity. However, this is only one aspect related to the protection of electronically processed information. An important phenomenon accompanying the operation of data processing devices is a formation of an electromagnetic field that is not visible. This field may have features correlated with electrical signals which are the form of processed information. A reception and a recording of such electromagnetic emissions may allow the recovery of data that should be protected. This phenomenon may concern a wide range of electronic devices (personal computers, monitors, printers, projectors, keyboards, faxes, multifunction devices, VoIP terminals, and so on), the use of which may determine our information and health security.

This Special Issue is dedicated to the presentation of various issues that affect the extension of areas of information security in terms of using possibilities of valuable emissions in electromagnetic penetration processes and also in terms of counteraction in the formation of sources of sensitive emissions. 

Particularly interesting are the techniques of non-invasive data acquisition, digital images processing which are reproduced in a rastering process based on recorded signals of valuable emissions, offering protection against electromagnetic eavesdropping processes.

Taking this into account, we would like to invite you to propose novel research in the area of protection of information against electromagnetic penetration that can be efficiently applied both in the military and civilian domain and would be interesting to the wide audience of the prestigious Safety journal.

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. Safety 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 1800 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.
