Special Issue Information
In traditional mobile communications networks, the major goal is to enrich people's life through communication. Users may communicate with each other through text messages, voice calls, video calls or shared images, surf the Internet or access app/social media services via smart phones. However, 5G is no longer limited to individual users. It is not just about having a faster mobile network or having richer features in a smartphone. In the future, 5G will also provide services for vertical industries, and various new services, such as smart transport, smart manufacturing, health care, and smart homes, will emerge from this. As open network platforms, 5G networks raise serious concerns around security and privacy issues. Therefore, in order to ensure that various enterprise applications can run smoothly in the 5G environment, it is urgent and challenging to explore the security solutions required by various commercial applications and find solutions that can reduce privacy leakage. This Special Issue aims to provide an advanced method or application for researchers and engineers to contribute with original research that presents state-of-the-art research outcomes toward security and privacy solutions in the 5G environment. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected based on both their quality and relevance to the theme of this Special Issue. Potential topics include but are not limited to the cryptographic approach for privacy-preserving data transmission and data analysis; private information collection, storage, aggregation, retrieval, and transmission; security analysis; digital watermarking; forensics; information hiding; security and privacy in machine learning; security and privacy issues in the cloud service; security and privacy issues in IoT; and security and privacy in 5G applications. Please note that all submitted papers should be in the scope of the Symmetry journal.
