The tutorial will include a discussion of Security, privacy and Trust in Distributed systems and Cloud Computing. It will briefly cover Privacy Enhancing Technologies, Security Paradigms and Pervasive Trust, Trust Negotiations and Trading Privacy for Trust.

An example of issues in Privacy Preserving Data Dissemination and Secure data warehouse will be discussed to give some research ideas. The tutorial will include some results from detecting Service Violations in Internet & Mobile Ad Hoc Networks.

The ideas of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Yahoo on cloud computing will also be presented. Example of Privacy and identity management in cloud and Multi-tenancy issues will be discussed. The tutorial will give some measurements on Amazon Cloud.

The tutorial will briefly bring out the issues in Collaborative Attacks in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks and introduce Mobile Cloud Computing. It will be concluded with an ongoing project on End to End Security and Privacy in Distributed Systems and Cloud.
