Categories: IFS - TC - News Date: Apr 11, 2012 Title: Announcement of TIFS Special Issue on Privacy and Trust Management in Cloud and Distributed SystemsThe IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security has announced a Call for Papers that invites researchers to contribute original articles that cover a broad range of topics related to privacy preservation and trust management in cloud and distributed systems, with a focus on emerging networking contexts such as social media, cloud computing, and power grid systems.
With the increasing drive towards availability of data and services anytime anywhere, privacy risks have significantly increased. Unauthorized disclosure, modification, usage, or uncontrolled access to privacy-sensitive data may result in high human and financial costs. In the distributed computing environments, trust plays a crucial role in mitigating the privacy risk by guaranteeing meaningful interactions, data sharing, and communications. Trust management is a key enabling technology for security and privacy enhancement. While privacy preservation and trust management are already challenging problems, it is imperative to explore how privacy-oriented and trust- oriented approaches can integrate to bring new solutions in safeguarding information sharing and protecting critical cyber infrastructure. Furthermore, there are questions about whether existing trust models and privacy preserving schemes are robust against attacks. This Call for Papers invites researchers to contribute original articles that cover a broad range of topics related to privacy preservation and trust management in cloud and distributed systems, with a focus on emerging networking contexts such as social media, cloud computing, and power grid systems.
Example topics include but are not limited to:
