Introduction
Cybersecurity is an essential need for a modern society in which information technology and services pervade every aspect of our lives. However, it is challenging to achieve, as technology is changing at rapid speed and our systems become ever more complex. We are gradually becoming more dependent upon such information and communication infrastructures, and the threats we face are organised by attackers or cyber criminals to exploit our dependency. Moreover, cyberspace is considered as the fifth battlefield after land, air, water and space. Moreover, mobile devices face many resource and other challenges (battery life, storage, bandwidth, security, etc.).

To solve these problems, researchers have introduced a trusted and dependable solution, called Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) which refers to an infrastructure where both the data storage and data processing happen outside of the mobile device. As in every new technology, some challenges face the vision of the Mobile Cloud Computing, which are the administrative policies and security concerns (i.e. secure data storage, secure computation, network security, data privacy, usage privacy, location privacy, etc). Additionally, web based applications also have various security and privacy issues which need to be addressed.

Objective
Objective of this sspecial issue is to investigate the opportunities and requirements for Mobile Cloud Computing and web based applications.

Introduction
Soft computing is a set of methods which are highly consistent at the target level and distinctive at the method level. This feature determines the natural complementarity and integration among the soft computing members. The organic combination of its members can often take into account the different aspects of the problem and perspective, complementary advantages, coordination, and achieved good results. Soft computing mainly includes rough set, fuzzy logic, neural network, genetic algorithm, particle swarm algorithm, chaos and other parts while compared with traditional hard computing, soft computing is closer to the objective things themselves, and human thinking more closely with more intelligent to complete the solution to the problem. With the development of related technologies, soft computing has developed rapidly in recent years, and is widely used in many fields, such as the analysis of complex systems, signal processing, pattern recognition, fault diagnosis, data compression and so on. Soft computing and the other areas of professional and technical knowledge combined to form a specific and effective means to solve the problem. And each member between the soft computing are not mutually exclusive, but cooperation, so in solving specific problems can use soft computing technology to realize the complementary advantages.

Since the concept of Web mining was put forward in 1996, it has attracted the interest of many researchers. They have studied and explored Web knowledge discovery from different aspects and in different ways. Web mining data can be derived from the Web server, client and proxy server and the data types are text, pictures, sounds and tags; data characteristics are unmarked, distributed, heterogeneous, semi-structured and time-varying. Therefore, although Web mining can be seen as a special application of data mining, because of its data characteristics and the relevance of people, Web mining is necessarily to be regarded as an independent research area to explore. Under this background, the integration of soft computing techniques and Web based applications is the trend.

Objective
This special issue aims at bringing together researchers in the world working on soft computing techniques with the special applications on Web engineering. We are seeking for the high-quality and unpublished original work that deliver their research in the soft computing techniques. Contributions may present and solve open technical problems, integrate novel solutions efficiently, and focus on the performance evaluation and comparison with existing standards.
