STM08 is the fourth international workshop under the auspices of the 
Security and
Trust Management working group of ERCIM (European Research  Consortium in

* To investigate the foundations and applications of security and trust 
  in ICT.
* To study the deep interplay between trust management and common security
  issues such as confidentiality, integrity and  availability.
* To identify and promote new areas of research connected with   security
  management, e.g. dynamic and mobile coalition management (e.g., P2P, 
  MANETs, Web/GRID services).
* To identify and promote new areas of research connected with
  trust management, e.g. reputation, recommendation, collaboration  etc.
* To provide a platform for presenting and discussing emerging ideas and 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Semantics and computational models for security and trust.
* Security and trust management architectures, mechanisms and  policies.

* Networked systems security.
* Privacy and anonymity.
* Identity management.
* ICT for securing digital as well as physical assets.
* Cryptography.

The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research,
case studies, and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions
discussing the application and deployment of security technologies in 

During STM08 there will be the ERCIM STM Award for the best Ph.D. Thesis on
