Special Issue on Entropy-Based Applied Cryptography and Enhanced Security for Ubiquitous Computing

James Park, Wanlei Zhou
2016 Entropy  
Entropy is a basic and important concept in information theory. It is also often used as a measure of the unpredictability of a cryptographic key in cryptography research areas. Ubiquitous computing (Ubi-comp) has emerged rapidly as an exciting new paradigm. In this special issue, we mainly selected and discussed papers related with ore theories based on the graph theory to solve computational problems on cryptography and security, practical technologies; applications and services for Ubi-comp
