Nowadays, cyber threats are getting more and more complex. The impact and consequences of these threats are not perceptible on the protocol stack as they do not induce network behavior that seems to be explicitly malevolent. At the same time, developments on the technology side have accelerated. In particular, the Internet of Things (IoT), Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT), Software Defined Networking and novel cyber-physical techniques are bringing information security concerns to every aspect of life. Therefore, the editors of this special issue are looking forward to recent advances in the related research, not limited to the following topics, providing a platform for researchers from both academia and industry to exchange their innovative ideas, theories, and applications.


Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to:

• Secure wireless communication protocols

• Secure physical layer solutions

• Cryptography, key management and authorization in IoT

• Secure information fusion and processing

• Trust and privacy software solutions for SDN architectures

• Authentication and verification tools for IoT Environments

• Simulation and performance analysis of secure novel protocols and algorithms

• Secure Sensing Techniques for WSNs and Ad-hoc networks

• Secure Data Analysis Techniques

• Security in 5G Networks

• Secure Solutions for IoT Based Health Care Systems

• Security in Narrow Band IoT Systems (NB-IoT)
