Internet of Things (IoT) can be linked to a sixth-generation (6G) mobile network, which offers not only traditional communication services but also computing, caching, sensing, and control facilities to a large number of IoT devices on a global scale. Moreover, IoT may use artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver smart services at the network edge and to improve the operation and performance of terrestrial communication infrastructure. The use of AI in IoT networks will also help in the measurement and collection of data from the domain of interest with high precision. Therefore, more smart devices will be incorporated into 6G networks as IoT grows, creating massive amounts of real-time data. However, security and privacy concerns may emerge when the measurement and collecting of data expand as a result of the deployment of a large number of IoT devices.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together original research and review articles discussing the security and intelligence in IoT networks over 6G. Researchers around the world are encouraged to propose cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML), quantum machine learning (QML), blockchain, terahertz (THz) communication, fog/edge computing, visible light communication (VLC), and so on, for the IoT communication networks.
