*Future Generation Computer Systems (Elsevier)*

*Special issue on Security, Privacy and Trust of the User-centric Solutions*

In future computing environments, due to the ongoing development of 
pervasive and smart technologies, movement towards user-centric 
solutions must be paramount. The frameworks for everyday personal 
computing devices, including smartphones, smart cards and sensors, are 
becoming user-centric instead of issuer-centric. User-centric solutions 
can target a wide range of applications, ranging from individual devices 
communicating with other connected devices, through to data-sharing in 
cloud computing and open grids on very powerful computing systems. 
User-centric solutions address the devices themselves and the ways in 
which they communicate, i.e., the networks and the end-user 
applications. The key factor in the success of user-centric solutions is 
the peace of mind of users. To achieve this the security, privacy and 
trust in the user-centric ecosystem for any device must be ensured.

This special issue aims to further scientific research within the field 
of security, privacy and trust for user-centric solutions. It will 
accept original research papers that report the latest results and 
advances in this area. It also invites review articles that focus on the 
state of the art in security, privacy and trust solutions for 
user-centric devices, network and applications, highlighting trends and 
challenges. The papers will be peer reviewed and will be selected on the 
basis of their quality and relevance to the topic of this special issue. 
Topics include (but are not limited to):

•Security, Privacy and Trust of:

-User-centric Devices (Smartphones, PDA, RFID, Sensors, Smart Cards, 
Smart Cameras, Smart Objects)

-User-centric Networks (Mobile Ad hoc Networks, M2M Networks, Urban 
Networks, Wireless Sensor Networks)

-User-centric Applications (Cloud Computing, Data Provenance, Smart 
Grids, Smart Homes, Healthcare, Smart Spaces, Convergent Pervasive and 
Smart Environments)

•Technologies used to enhance Security, Privacy and Trust in 
User-centric solutions (NFC, IPv6, TPM)

•Societal issues related to Security, Privacy and Trust in User-centric 
solutions (HCI, User interactions)
