Ubiquitous / Pervasive Computing Security

Today's ever smaller computers are increasingly spreading in our environment. Being available ubiquitously in the devices and appliances that we use everyday, this embedded computing power will increase their capacities. Furthermore, these computers are also increasingly interconnected into varying range networks, thus enabling access to a pervasive flow of information and services.

The goal of this research theme is to analyse new security and privacy issues arising from the novel architecture of ubiquitous and pervasive systems and to propose solutions to safely deploy services and appliances. This theme addresses both a priori and open trust models.
