Trust has been a research area in social sciences for a long time however it is a new area in computing motivated by trust models for e-commerce. Trust is an open and challenging research area.


Trusted computing methods consistently outperformed previous generations of cryptographic techniques in domains where computation and energy resources are limited. They provide a flexible and expressive security framework that has been successfully applied to a wide range of real world problems.


Due to the current emerging problems of privacy, the new generation of trust algorithms and architectures are expected to solve increasingly challenging security problems. This must be done under growing constraints such as computational resources, memory budget and energy consumption. For these reasons, new ideas have to come up in the field of trusted computing, such as novel algorithms, to fill the gap that now exists with the most recent trust paradigms.


The purpose of this special session is to highlight recent advances in Trust. In particular, this session welcomes contributions toward the solution of the weaknesses (e.g. scalability, computational efficiency) and the improvement of the strengths (e.g. the ability of dealing with limited resources) of the state of the art Trust methods. We also encourage the submission of new theoretical results in the statistical aspects of Trust and innovative solutions to real world problems.
