Recent advances in sensing, computing, and networking have paved the way for the emerging paradigm of Mobile Crowd Sensing (MCS). The openness of such systems and the richness of data MCS users are expected to contribute to them raise significant concerns for their security, privacy-preservation and resilience. Prior works addressed different aspects of the problem. But in order to reap the benefits of this new sensing paradigm, we need a holistic solution. That is, a secure and accountable MCS system that preserves user privacy, and enables the provision of incentives to the participants. At the same time, we are after a MCS architecture that is resilient to abusive users and guarantees privacy protection even against multiple misbehaving and intelligent MCS entities (servers). In this work, we meet these challenges and propose a comprehensive security and privacy-preserving architecture. With a full blown implementation, on real mobile devices, and experimental evaluation we demonstrate our system's efficiency, practicality, and scalability. Last but not least, we formally assess the achieved security and privacy properties. Overall, our system offers strong security and privacy-preservation guarantees, thus, facilitating the deployment of trustworthy MCS applications.
