                   Call for Papers


The ENIGMA – Brazilian Journal of Information Security and Cryptography – is a technical-scientific publication that aims at discussing theoretical aspect contributions and practical applications results in information security, cryptography and cyber defense as well as fundamental subjects in support of those issues.

This journal is directed to academia researchers, industry professionals, members of government and military organizations, and all people that have interest in the area of information security and cryptography in order to disseminate and share their new technologies, scientific discoveries and research contributions.

The creation of this periodical is due the necessity to solve a gap represented by the lack of a technical-scientific Brazilian journal that emphasizes information security and cryptography. In this manner, ENIGMA – Brazilian Journal of Information Security and Cryptography – must provide this demand, publishing papers of high quality within the international state-of-the-art.

In this manner, ENIGMA – Brazilian Journal of Information Security and Cryptography – will fulfill this demand, and will publish state-of-art and original research papers and timely review articles on the theory, design, and evaluation of all aspects of information, network and system security.
