Next Generation of Security and Privacy in IoT, Industry 4.0, 5G Systems and Beyond
The increasing demand for ubiquitous connection of users and machines to the Internet is currently accelerating the deployment of 5G networks, integrating successful paradigms such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cyber–physical systems (CPS), and mobile technologies under the same technological umbrella and standardization efforts.
Although such an integration might benefit users and manufacturers on several servicelevels, it also widens the attack surface of such systems, jeopardizing the trustworthiness, usability, and availability of the overall network infrastructure. In addition, the connection of typically isolated environments to the Internet increasingly threatens the privacy of the data of users and companies. Motivated adversaries can steal not only data stored on local servers, but also access to the physical environment surrounding the connected devices, and maliciously use them to acquire sensitive information.
The aim of this Topic is to gather and showcase the most recent developments in the areas of cybersecurity and privacy of next-generation 5G systems, IoT, and Industry 4.0 applications. The SI solicits contributions focusing on all aspects of security and privacy for 5G-based systems, including new attack vectors, defensive strategies, secure-by-design network architectures, privacy-by-design solutions, industry-based and application-specific use-cases, and data analyses for security and privacy. Literature review papers on recent challenges and solutions in the area of security and privacy for IoT and 5G are also welcome.

- Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things (IoT).
- Security attacks and defense technologies for IoT, cyber–physical systems (CPS), 5G systems, and beyond.
