Special Issue Information
The rapid development of new technologies and applications such as 5G, big data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things has profoundly changed production and lifestyles and is an important driving force in reconfiguring the pattern of economic and social development. While cyberspace brings great convenience to people, the threat and risk vulnerability of cyber security is also increasingly prominent. The issues of cyberspace security have attracted the attention of scholars. Cryptography, blockchain and artificial intelligence, as the core and supporting technologies for securing cyberspace, can provide data privacy and user privacy protection. Additionally, to solve network security problems, we need to improve security awareness, focus on the output of industry–education cooperation and enhance education on the discipline. This Special Issue focuses on the information technology and education of cybersecurity as we aim to explore new theories, methods, scenarios, and applications of education about cyber security and cryptography.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Anonymity and privacy technologies
- Cyber deterrence strategies
- Big data security and privacy
- Privacy-enhancing technology
- Secure computation
- Applied cryptography
- Data and application security
- Cloud computing security
- Modern cryptography education
- Education of blockchain techniques
- Education of artificial intelligence
- Information security education
- Cryptography education
- Network security education
- Implementation and evaluation of networked security systems
- Intrusion detection, prevention, and response key management, public key infrastructures, certification, revocation, and authentication
- Malware detection and mitigation
- Security and privacy for data and network outsourcing services
- Security for critical infrastructures (smart grids, transportation systems, etc.)
- Security for future Internet architectures and designs
- Security in machine learning
- Security and privacy in emerging wireless technologies and applications
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
