New computing paradigms, such as cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things open new horizons to businesses by making possible the provision of high quality services all over the world. All these developments ultimately aim at improving our quality of life, at making it easier to generate wealth, and at ensuring that businesses remain competitive in the global marketplace. These developments have been made possible in a remarkably short time span, by virtue of the fact that information and communication technologies move fast; sometimes they move too fast for society and for governments. This explains why such rapid technological evolutions cannot be problem-free. In the domain of digital businesses, 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 13th International Conference on Trust, Privacy and Security in Digital Business (TrustBus’16) 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’16 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
  • Common practices, legal and regulatory issues in digital business
  • Delivery technologies and scheduling protocols
  • Economics of information systems security and privacy
  • Enterprise management and consumer protection
  • Intellectual property and digital rights management
  • Languages for description of services and contracts
  • Models for access control and authentication
  • Cryptographic building-blocks for e-business applications
  • Business architectures and underlying infrastructures
  • Design of business models with security requirements
  • Electronic cash, wallets and pay-per-view systems
  • Security, privacy and trust in e-services
  • Cloud computing security and privacy
