Pervasive devices interacting in open and dynamic spaces with each others require a mechanism that allows them acting autonomously in a secure way and protecting their resources. Trust is fundamental to establish communication with other users, because the identity is often uncertain and on one's own does not provide trust information, for instance, could(More)
In pervasive computing environments, mobile devices communicate via wireless links without requiring any fixed infrastructure. These devices must be able to discover and share services dynamically. In this paper, we propose a new service discovery middleware specifically designed for this kind of environments. This middleware is composed of a service(More)
Alice first meets Bob in an entertainment shop, then, they wish to share multimedia content, but Do they know what are trustworthy users? How do they share such information in a secure way? How do they establish the permissions? Pervasive computing environments originate this kind of scenario, users with their personal devices interacting without need of(More)
User adaptive systems in the context of pervasive computing can only unveil their power if based on a generic middleware managing private data and context information in combination with flexible device access and control. However, managing those data poses severe privacy problems both legally and from a trust perspective. Therefore we propose a home(More)
Trust has emerged as an important facet of inter-domain relationships. Trust management in fixed networks is not functional in ad hoc P2P networks, because these require an autonomous, user-centric and non-static trust management. The trust model is the basis of any security infrastructure. In this paper, we propose a trust-based middleware for secure(More)
Smartcards and PKCS #11 are an appealing solution for combined storage and certificate management at the enduser level. Many applications use PKCS #11 primitives for security reasons: a popular browser, like Netscape Navigator contain a PKCS #11 cryptographic module that plays a critical role in secure web surfing and e-mail signing and encryption.(More)
