The rapid growth of mobile services and Internet of Things (IoT), have caused a severe demand of a management system for Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) where User Equipments (UEs) benefit from high computational power, capacity and communication as well as the offered services by MEC. However, a comprehensive management is required to orchestrate the services and resource in MEC to fairly distribute to UEs with the aim of ensuring the Quality of Experience (QoE). In this paper, we propose a new and trustable framework for MEC management/orchestration system with crucial security and authentication components by which it ensures the delivery of users’ quality of experience.
