The mission of the IFIPTM 2023 conference is to share research solutions to problems related to trust and trust management in digital infrastructures. As society becomes increasingly digitalized, interactions are transferred to the digital domain, which introduces problems of establishing, maintaining and exploiting trust among entities and services in the digital domain, including related security and privacy issues.

One indicator of the increasing importance of trust in the digital domain is the increase in legislation and regulation, such as the GDPR regulation (the general data protection regulation, a European privacy and security law) and the NIS 2 directive (measures for a high level of cybersecurity) in Europe. Similar regulations are emerging around the World. The conference seeks to present solutions to all issues relating to trust and trust management in a digitalized society, and to identify new challenges and directions for future research.


During the conference there will be an industrial Keynote from Yuecel Karabulut (Amazon Web Services) titled "The Journey of Trust in Cloud Computing". At their core, many cloud security discussions ultimately distill to trust. In a decade since the rise of cloud computing, a lot of research has been done on the topic of security & trust in cloud computing. In his talk, Karabulut will discuss how the concept of trust between organizations (consumers of cloud) and public cloud vendors has been evolving and which technological innovations have been shaping the amount of trust needed to trust the cloud vendors.
