functionality would significantly extend smart card possibilities. However, until very recently, such promises have not been backed by real implementations; JavaCard existence has been limited to reference implementations—better known as simulations. However, JavaCard implementations now exist and the technology is beginning to live up to the hype. A(More)
SSL is the de facto standard today for securing end-to-end transport on the Internet. While the protocol itself seems rather secure, there are a number of risks that lurk in its use, for example, in web banking. However, the adoption of password-based key-exchange protocols can overcome some of these problems. We propose the integration of such a protocol(More)
—Energy-efficiency is key to meet lifetime requirements of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) applications. Today's run-time platforms and development environments leave it to the application developer to manage power consumption. For best results, the characteristics of the individual hardware platforms must be well understood and minutely directed. An(More)
