“Future Generation Computer Systems”, a forum for the publication of peer-reviewed, high-quality original papers in the computer systems sciences, focusing specifically advances and challenges in Cybersecurity involving complex computer systems and communication networks having security, trust and privacy being major issues. This is seeking original manuscripts for a Special Issue on Security, Trust and Privacy in Cyber (STPCyber): Future trends and Challenges scheduled to appear in the second half of 2018.

With rapid advancements in Cyber security involving increased 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 which are key domains of Cyber Security. As a result, we need to build systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving Security, Trust and Privacy at the same time. As useful and innovative technologies, trusted computing and communications are attracting researchers with more and more attention.

The special issue will provide a forum for presenting research works showing advances on Security, Trust and Privacy for cyber infrastructures, including new platforms, system software enhancements, security algorithm design and optimization and technologies in complex computer systems and communication networks to defend against known and unknown behaviour of bad guys. The special issue will also be open to any author, but it will also invite extended versions of the selected papers of Trustcom 2017 conference whose topics fit in the scope of this special issue. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers to ensure a very high quality of papers selected for the Special Issue.
