Until recently, researchers have focused on the cryptographic-based security issues more intensively than the privacy and trust issues. However, without the incorporation of trust and privacy features, cryptographic-based security mechanisms are not capable of singlehandedly providing robustness, reliability and completeness in a security solution. In this chapter, we present generic and flexible taxonomies of privacy and trust. We also give detailed critical analyses of the state-of-the-art research, in the field of privacy and trust that is currently not available in the literature. This chapter also highlights the challenging issues and problems.
