Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Smart networks are becoming part of our daily life. Social networks and novel infrastructure networks are all around us and promise new exciting opportunities of communication, collaboration and doing business. These new adventures come at a high price though: Our privacy.
Online privacy is one of the major concerns in todays modern society. Far too often we trade privacy for trust in order to reap the promised potential of such smart networks. Since the fundaments of rights shifted from the person to social circumstances, it is increasingly difficult to protect the privacy of individuals sharing a public space, or performing public activities.

This issue collects tutorials and original contributions in the area of trust and privacy in networks. Contributions are welcome that contain theoretical work about trust and privacy in networks as well as present practical examples from our daily life.
