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)
A Personal Network is a self-organizing, secure and private network of a user’s devices notwithstanding their geographic location. It aims to utilize pervasive computing to provide users with new and improved services. In this paper we propose a model for securing Personal Network clusters. Clusters are ad-hoc networks of co-located personal devices.(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)
In this paper we evaluate our previously proposed security architecture for personal networks (PNs). Personal 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(More)
A Personal Network (PN) is a new type of an overlay network consisting of all personal devices belonging to a user, be they remote or local. Such continuous and seamless connectivity of all personal devices belonging to a user enables the development of new applications and improved services. A Personal Network is an intelligent and user-centric network(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.
