Dear Colleagues,

The journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220, IF 3.031) is currently running a
Special Issue entitled "Monitoring of Security Properties in IoT and
Emerging Technologies". Dr. Antonio Muñoz (Universidad de Málaga,
Spain), Prof. Dr. Eduardo B. Fernandez (Florida Atlantic University,
USA) and Prof. Dr. Haris Mouratidis (University of Brighton, UK) are
serving as Guest Editors for this issue. We think you could make an
excellent contribution based on your expertise.

The recent advances in technologies such as cloud computing, IoT, edge
computing, and fog computing are transforming the way in which
large-scale computations are performed. This has introduced improvements
in terms of scalability for clouds, and in terms of permanent connection
and user-centric computation for IoT, edge, and pervasive computing.
However, the incursion of these technologies entails the introduction of
new challenges regarding security and privacy. Monitoring of security
properties in each of these technologies implies tailoring solutions
according to particular features of baseline technology. [...]
