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.
