The current era is modeling every object into a computing entity as well as making a way for billions of devices demanding connectivity at the same time. With a large number of connections and every object with computing facilities, intrusions and threats are likely to increase. Due to the ease of access and availability to all, “Internet of Things (IoT)” has a huge impact on everyone. However, preservation of information and sensitive data is one of the biggest challenges in these networks. Thus, focusing on the aspect of trust, privacy, and security of sensors in our surroundings, it is necessary to provide solid as well as evident solutions as countermeasures against threats in sensor networks. There is a huge gap between the existing solutions and the actual operations of different sensors in the real world; thus, it becomes important to address the security challenges associated with sensor networks by providing novel strategies, frameworks, architectures, and middleware. Further, accessing different levels of vulnerabilities and understanding different dimensions of threats are of much importance.
This special issue aims to bring together the current state-of-the-art research and future directions for the security, privacy, and trust in sensor networks. For such a goal, we cordially invite researchers and engineers from both academia and industry to submit their original and novel work for inclusion in this special issue. Tutorial or survey papers are also welcome. In addition, this special issue will include the extended versions of the best papers, which will be presented at the 2nd International Symposium on Mobile Internet Security (MobiSec'17, http://isyou.info/conf/mobisec17/).
The topics related to this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Secure architecture and models for sensor networks
- Security issues and protocols for sensor networks
- Security threats, models, and countermeasures for sensor networks
- Access control and authentication for sensor networks
- Privacy, trust, and reliability for sensor networks
- Risk/threat assessment and management for sensor networks
- Intrusion detection techniques for sensor networks
- Availability, recovery and auditing for sensor networks
- Mobility management and handover security for sensor networks
- IoT security and privacy issues
- Network security for IoT
- Software security for IoT
- Threat intelligence for IoT
- Vehicular-sensor network security
- Others and emerging new topics

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 papers will be 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 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.
