Protecting applications and devices in nomadic business environments

Research report RR-04-101

This paper presents a pragmatic approach to protect the integrity of execution of an application in a nomadic business environment. Applications run in such contexts are based on the federation of appliances collaborating through direct communication as well as through the distribution of mobile pieces of code. Securing the operation of an application means protecting mobile code since execution environments may misbehave as well as protecting the environments because mobile pieces of code are potentially malicious. After reviewing several such protection techniques, an architecture for securing business-to-employee and business-to-business nomadic applications is drafted based on the trust model that can be assumed in such a context.
