Trust and security are the top concerns of cloud computing users and the key barrier to widespread uptake of cloud computing services across industries. The resistance towards cloud computing is especially experienced in industries handling sensitive data, such as healthcare, government, banking, etc.

While cloud computing brings about several conveniences for end-users, many new issues surfaced from cloud computing's promise of elasticity and availability. With these new issues, traditional security and trust techniques may not be able to fully resolve cloud computing's trust and security problems. Some of these new constraints include definition of data ownership, massive virtualization, multi-tenancy, elasticity, and cross-geographical server environments. There is a need for researchers to consolidate, discuss and bring forward this emerging and important field to the next level.

This special issue focuses on the research challenges and issues in trust and security in cloud computing. It aims to collect contributions by researchers from both academia and industry, show the latest research results and methodologies addressing top concerns in trust and security in cloud computing, and provide valuable information to researchers as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Malware detection in cloud computing

  • Cryptography and encryption techniques for cloud computing

  • Privacy in cloud computing

  • Data obfuscation for cloud computing

  • Accountability in cloud computing

  • Security in virtualized environments

  • Governance, regulation and compliance in cloud computing

  • Data analytics for security in cloud computing

  • Visualization for security in cloud computing

  • Cloud computing threat detection techniques

  • Trust in cloud services

  • Trust reputation systems for cloud computing

  • Reports on critical, real-life security and trust use cases in cloud computing

  • Secure and trusted workflows in cloud computing

  • Attacks and disaster preparation, recovery, and response

  • Application and practical experiences

  • Data security, privacy, retention and recovery

  • Position papers on issues in security and trust in cloud computing
