Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to rapid technical advancements, many devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment, such as embedded systems, mobile devices, actuators and sensors (all of which can be referred to as smart things) can receive huge amounts of information through data exchanging and interconnection. In this context, it is important to preserve individual privacy and secure the shared data. Thus, privacy and security has attracted a great deal of attention and research issues in recent decades. Hundreds of security solutions have recently been discussed for the IoT environment. Since many criteria and parameters must be considered with regard to privacy and security issues, it is critical to discuss and develop new methodologies and techniques by adopting evolutionary computations. The objective of this Special Issue on “Security and Privacy Techniques in IoT Environments” is to compile recent research efforts dedicated to studying and developing security and privacy issues related to IoT devices and the IoT environment. The Special Issue solicits high quality and unpublished work on recent advances in new methodologies for security and privacy solutions, and theories and technologies proposed to defend IOT-oriented applications against adversarial or malicious attacks.
