Last Call for Special Issue Papers: Trusted Computing and Communications
in the Wiley’s Security and Communication Networks (SCN) Journal

With the rapid development and increasing complexity of computer and communications systems and networks, traditional security technologies may not be able to meet the demand for integrated and dynamic security solutions. As a challenging and fast-growing research area, trusted computing and communications work to make computer/communications systems and networks available, secure, reliable, and controllable. In general, trust works in three aspects: identity trust, function trust, and behavior trust. We can view traditional security as
the identity trust, whereas trusted computing and communications also include function trust and behavior trust of systems and networks. In fact, trusted computing and communications have gradually become an essential part of e-commence and e-government, including various distributed services, applications, and systems.This Special Issue (SI) is proposed in Wiley’s Security and Communication Networks (SCN) Journal ( to provide a forum in the community to exchange the current research activities focusing on analysis, design, and applications of trusted computing and communications in various computer/communications systems and networks.
