Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Future mobile systems are expected to offer users flexible access to information and services using a combination of different end-user devices in a personal distributed environment (PDE). With PDEs able to operate over multiple air interfaces and heterogeneous networks, requiring seamless and rapid service provision, a flexible and fair trading of communication services is required. For. this reason, a digital marketplace (DMP) is proposed. The DMP is based on an agent framework capable of enabling real-time service negotiation over disparate networks according to users' price and QoS requirements. The paper discusses the security threats and challenges to the PDE, and also to a DMP implementation.
