The advances in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have raised new opportunities for the implementation of novel applications and the provision of high quality services over global networks. The aim is to utilize this ‘information society era’ for improving the quality of life for all citizens, disseminating knowledge, strengthening social cohesion, generating earnings and finally ensuring that organizations and public bodies remain competitive in the global electronic marketplace. 

Unfortunately, such a rapid technological evolution cannot be problem free. Concerns are raised regarding the ‘lack of trust’ in electronic procedures and the extent to which ‘information security’ and ‘user privacy’ can be ensured. 

In answer to these concerns, the 12th International Conference on Trust, Privacy and Security in Digital Business (TrustBus’15) will provide an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of trust and privacy in digital business.

TrustBus’15 will bring together researchers from different disciplines, developers, and users all interested in the critical success factors of digital business systems. We are interested in papers, work-in-progress reports, and industrial experiences describing advances in all areas of digital business applications related to trust and privacy, including, but not limited to:

  • Anonymity and pseudonymity in business transactions
