Recent rapid advances in Mobile Cellular Networks, Cloud Computing,
and Big Data have introduced Fog/Edge Computing as an interesting
topic to the research community, one that has received much attention
from practitioners, scholars, and the general public. The Fog/Edge
Computing can be described as an extension of the Cloud Computing to
the edge of an enterprise's network to cope with the tremendous data
volumes for having a low-latency or even real-time
service. Considering that we are in the era of big data, many
applications, such as the Internet of Things, Mobile Social Networks,
and Smart City, keep generating data and interacting with the remote
data centers all the time, which creates unique requirements and new
challenges on the computation, storage, and communication. Thanks to
the idea of the Fog/Edge Computing, certain tasks can be mitigated
from the heavy-weighted data center to local devices, which not only
reduces the workload of the data center but also accelerates the
average serving speed. Due to the benefits of using Fog/Edge
Computing, many emergent applications are now available for
individuals, business enterprises, and governments. However, with the
emergence of these new applications, various security and privacy
issues are also exposed. Many new security and privacy techniques have
been developed and are adopted in the Fog/Edge Computing.

The main goal of this book is to collect the recent development of
security, privacy, and applications in the Fog/Edge Computing. This
book will be of particular value to academics, researchers,
practitioners, government officials, business organizations (e.g.,
executives, marketing professionals, resource managers, etc.), and
even customers -- working, participating, or those interested in
fields related to Fog Computing and Cloud Computing. The content of
the book will be especially useful for students in areas like Internet
of Things, Clouds, Distributed Systems, Computer Networks, Data
Mining, and administrative sciences and management, but also applies
to students of education, economy, or law, who would benefit from the
information, cases, and examples therein.
