Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

The trend in wireless communication systems is that they will become more flexible and customised One application area envisaged in this regard is the introduction of third party players for provision of enhanced new services. This will require specific security techniques to support new features. Developing the security solutions should take into account requirements of multiparty operation on the one hand and limitation of the wireless bearers on the other hand. This paper addresses issues of provision of fundamental authentication in the multiparty system using a public key infrastructure (PKI), with some preliminary assessment of the proposed technique.
