Security and Communication Networks (Wiley)
Special Issue on Trusted Network Computing

With the rapid development and increasing complexity of computer systems and communication networks, user requirements for trust, security, and privacy are becoming more and more demanding. Therefore, there is a grand challenge that traditional security technologies and measures may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, mobile, wireless, and distributed computing environments. As a result, we need to build systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving trust, security, and privacy at the same time. As useful and innovative technologies, trusted computing and communications are attracting researchers with more and more attention in communication networks.

The main objective of the special issue is to provide an ideal international communication medium for the research community and facilitate the enhancement of the findings in the rapidly developed fields of trusted network computing.

Topics of particular interests include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Trusted communication protocols.
- Trusted network management.
- Trusted network configurations.
- Trusted network architectures.
- Trusted end-host securing.
- Federated, heterogeneous, and distributed computing in trusted network environments.
- Trust in mobile and wireless communications.
- Trust in e-commerce and e-government.
- Trust in social networks.
