Security issues in ubiquitous, pervasive, or mobile computing have not only become a constant topic at relevant conferences, but begin to influence industry projects and product design. In addition to the standard security topics of cryptography, protocols, and authentication, the most important security issue in ubiquitous computing is user interaction: this includes human-computer interaction methods as well as systems design that considers the user in the loop. This special issue is concerned with all these and related topics and aims to publish mature work on security in ubiquitous, pervasive, or mobile computing.
