Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multimedia data have dominated the Internet, and various devices are capable of producing and handling multimedia data such as audio, image, and video. Multimedia security is a major concern in the prevention of ownership and copyright problems. Multimedia security methodologies, such as digital watermarking, data encryption/decryption, steganography, data hiding, and blockchain, represent new trends in multimedia security. When considering multimedia security, symmetric and asymmetric concepts are very important to sender and receiver.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Malware in multimedia data and devices;
  • Multimedia data security, recovery, and segregation;
  • Secure integration of multimedia data in IoT and online social networks;
  • Multimedia steganography and steganalysis;
  • Digital watermarking;
  • Digital rights management systems;
  • Security and privacy issues about multimedia systems;
  • Multimedia security on smart homes, IoE, automobiles, smart city, and smart grid;
  • Security applications with blockchain;
  • Multimedia forensics;
  • Lightweight cryptography and protocols;
  • Privacy, reliability, and security issues raised by cyber physical systems;
  • Access control and authentication for multimedia privacy and security systems;
  • Symmetry and asymmetry security on multimedia data.
