Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


In advanced data security protocols and IT systems, one of the most important paradigm are intelligent security approaches, used in data distribution processes and analysis. Such solutions allow not only to facilitate data analytics tasks, but also allow to perform intelligent and secure information distribution, interpretation, and development of new technologies and security approaches. Nowadays there is a great demand to efficiently store and analyze a huge amount of data, originated from distributed sensors, as well as expectation to forecasting activities and analyzes in cloud computing. Possibility of development of such intelligent sensors will be connected with timely activities and procedures dedicated to intelligent security in cloud computing technologies. These subjects, as well as others, connected with intelligent security protocols and technologies, security sensors and security protocols, will form the subject of ISSCC 2020 Special Issue.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

  • Security sensors in Cloud Computing
  • Intelligent sensors in the Cloud
  • New computational approaches for Cloud security
  • Ambient intelligence for the Cloud
  • New application of security sensors
  • Innovative security and privacy protocols
  • Evaluations, and application of security sensors
  • Security and privacy approaches
  • Computational intelligence in data and sensors analysis
  • Cryptography and secret data management
  • Advanced sensors in cryptography and steganography systems

Imagechain—Application of Blockchain Technology for Images

Imagechain is a cryptographic structure that chain digital images with hash links. The most important feature, which differentiates it from blockchain, is that the pictures are not stored inside the blocks. Instead, the block and the image are combined together in the embedding process. Therefore, the imagechain is built from standard graphic files that may be used in the same way as any other image, but additionally, each of them contains a data block that links it to a previous element of the chain. The presented solution does not require any additional files except the images themselves. It supports multiple file formats and embedding methods, which makes it portable and user-friendly. At the same time, the scheme provides a high level of security and resistance to forgery. This is achieved by hashing the whole file with embedded data, so the image cannot be altered or removed from the chain without losing integrity. This article describes the basic concept of an imagechain together with building blocks and applications. The two most important issues are embedding methods and block structure. Full article
