Abstract

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. These ad hoe relationships require a notion of trust, which presents great difficulties in a dynamic wireless environment. This paper presents a format trust architecture to address these issues, with the focus on aspects of trust policy formation and its evolution.
