—Personal Network (PN) is a new concept utilizing pervasive computing to meet the needs of the user. As PNs edge closer towards reality, security becomes an important concern since any vulnerability in the system will limit its practical use. In this paper we introduce a security architecture designed for PNs. Our aim is to use secure but lightweight(More)
Network is a new concept utilizing pervasive and distributed computing to meet the needs of the user. We aim to secure Personal Networks with lightweight security mechanisms that are suitable for resource constrained devices yet robust enough for self organization and secure communication. In order to study the behavior of our proposed security mechanisms(More)
—Personal Networks (PNs) are future communication systems that combine wireless and infrastructure based networks to provide users a variety of services anywhere and anytime. PNs introduce new design challenges due to the heterogeneity of the involved technologies, the need for self-organization, the dynamics of the PN composition, the application-driven(More)
—Over the past few years, there has been increasing interest in utilizing Personal Area Networks (PANs) to offer users innovative and personalized services. This interest is a consequence of the widespread use of mobile devices such as laptops, mobile phones, PDAs, digital cameras, wireless headsets, etc. to carry out a variety of user-centric tasks.
