Amounts of personal data will increase significantly as we move towards the next generation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and telecommunications networks. Systems will need to be designed to withstand the additional attack vectors and the increased threat surface that will follow from the introduction of billions of new sensors and devices to the IoT network, as well as from the increased use of machine learning (ML) in the network.
Introducing machine learning or artificial intelligence (AI) techniques into the netwok will have a dual role: they can be both an asset and a threat, as attackers can also use these techniques to develop more dangerous attacks and use deep learning techniques to dig for personal information in the data.
This Special Issue will address novel techniques, methods, and algorithms for improving the data security and privacy in the IoT, paying special attention to the role that ML/AI techniques can play and how emerging attack vectors can be monitored and mitigated.
Thus, researchers and engineers from academia and industry are invited to submit their recent high-quality results and innovations. The list of topics includes but is not restricted to the following:
- Security and privacy in heterogeneous IoT
- Cross-domain trust management in IoT networks
- Novel trustworthy architectures, protocols, or applications for data security in IoT sensor networks
- Security threat modelling and vulnerability analysis in the IoT and sensor networks
- Secure communications in IoT and sensor networks
- Trust and identity management models for IoT and sensor networks
- Intrusion detection and malware mitigation in IoT networks
- Security testbeds and experimental results for IoT and sensor networks
- Lightweight security protocols and architectures for the IoT and sensor networks
- IoT security mechanisms targeting application layer protocols
- Trust and identity management in sensor networks and the IoT
- Orchestration and life cycle management for IoT security services
- Secure authentication and Access control for IoT devices
- AI and machine learning systems for IoT security
- Secure and Privacy-Preserving Data Mining and Aggregation in IoT applications
- Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies for IoT Security and Privacy
- Privacy-preserving, machine-learning-based data analytics in IoT and sensor networks
- Privacy-enhancing and anonymization techniques in IoT sensor networks
- Privacy preservation in IoT and sensor networks
- Privacy by design mechanism for IoT

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
