Distributed computing, grid computing, mobile computing, and pervasive computing have been dramatically advanced in recent years with a prolif eration of services and applications. However, security issues are extremely important since attacks and threats are expected, and security is still a major impediment to the further deployment of these services. Security mechanisms are essential to protect data integrity and confidentiality, access control, authentication, quality of service, user

This book covers the comprehensive research topics in security in dis tributed computing, grid computing, mobile computing, and pervasive computing, which include key management and agreement, authentica tion, intrusion detection, false data detection, secure data aggregation, anonymity, privacy, access control, applications, standardization, etc. It can serve as a useful reference for researchers, educators, graduate students, and practitioners in the field of security in distributed computing, grid computing, mobile computing, and pervasive computing. The book contains 16 chapters from prominent researchers working in this area around the world. It is organized along four themes (parts) in security issues for distributed computing, grid computing, mobile computing, and pervasive computing.
