The tremendous growth of the Internet is successfully making a variety of e-services a part of citizens' everyday life. E-services such as Web-banking, Web shopping, e-learning, e-healthcare, and e-government, are available in most countries around the world. Trust in E-Services: Technologies, Practices and Challenges provides an overview of e-service trust issues, including: definitions, constructs, and relationships with other research topics such as security, privacy, reputation, and risk.

Trust in E-Services introduces and discusses the existing trust platforms and management tools such as trust evaluation, reasoning approaches, and mechanisms for e-services. This book also offers contributions from researchers and practitioners with real-life experience and practice on how to build a trust environment for e-government services.
