[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message]

======================== Call for papers ====================================
Special Issue "On the Security of the Blockchain Technology »
Journal: MDPI Mathematics
Submission deadline: December 20th, 2023

Aim and Scope

Blockchain technology was designed to enable decentralized and secure crypto-currency.

Numerous studies have explored the features of blockchains, such as scalability, resiliency, decentralization, reliability, and immutability in different use cases. Hence, blockchains are becoming a cornerstone for the development and deployment of other technologies such as decentralized applications (Dapp), the Internet of Things (IoT), digital supply chains (DSCs), cooperative intelligent transportation systems (C-ITSs), federated learning (FL), and many others.

Blockchain is still a growing technology, and it has the potential to disrupt numerous technologies in the future. However, as an evolving technology, it is suffering from many setbacks; the most severe are from the security perspective.

This Special Issue calls for research contributions on how blockchains can ensure the security of systems and environments, and the different security issues related to blockchain-based technologies and architectures. More precisely, the topics of interests in this

Topics of interest
The special Issue include, but are not limited to:

Blockchain-based approaches for the security of IT systems;
Blockchain-based approaches for intrusion detection;
Blockchain issues and trends;
Blockchain privacy;
Blockchain new design;
Cryptocurrency fraud;
