C OMPUTER architectures are profoundly affected by a new security landscape, caused by the dramatic evolution of information technology over the past decade. First, secure computer architectures have to support a wide range of security applications that extend well beyond the desktop environment, and that also include handheld, mobile, and embedded architectures, as well as high-end computing servers. Second, secure computer architectures have to support new applications of information security

Third, secure computer architectures have to be protected and be tamperresistant at multiple abstraction levels, covering network, software, and hardware. This Special Section in Transactions on Computers aims to capture this evolving landscape of secure computing architectures, to build a vision of opportunities and unresolved challenges. Following an open call for papers, we received 30 submissions from authors in 18 different countries and on a broad range of topics related to secure computer architectures. After a preliminary screening, each submission was assigned to three reviewers. After the first round of reviews, we selected the six top-ranked papers for further consideration in the Special Section. These six papers were revised as a 'minor revision' by the authors.
