With the recent proliferation of ubiquitous, mobile and cloud-based systems, security, privacy and trust concerns surrounding the use of emerging technologies in the ensuing wake of the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to mount. In most instances, trust and privacy concerns continuously surface as a key deterrent to the adoption of these emergent technologies. The ensuing literature presents a Secure, Private and Trustworthy protocol (named SPTP) that was prototyped for addressing critical security, privacy and trust concerns surrounding mobile, pervasive and cloud services in Collective Intelligence (CI) scenarios. The efficacy of the protocol and its associated characteristics are evaluated in CI-related scenarios including multimodal monitoring of Elderly people in smart home environments, Online Advertisement targeting in Computational Advertising settings, and affective state monitoring through game play as an intervention for Autism among Children. We present our evaluation criteria for the proposed protocol, our initial results and future work.
