With an increasing number of wireless devices and access technologies available, users will be able to access their Personal Distributed Environment of services and data conveniently, in a wide variety of ways. Unfortunately. this flexibility Comes at a cost - higher security risks and vulnerabilities. The traditional association with a network provider may not exist, replaced by a far more nebulous association with a number of unknown entities, network nodes and service providers.
