Smart-Its Friends: A Technique for Users to Easily Establish Connections between Smart Artefacts [chapter]

Lars Erik Holmquist, Friedemann Mattern, Bernt Schiele, Petteri Alahuhta, Michael Beigl5, Hans-W. Gellersen
Ubicomp 2001: Ubiquitous Computing  
To prove our point we have implemented Smart-Its Friends, small embedded devices that become connected when a user holds them together and shakes them.  ...  Our concern is how qualitative relations and more selective connections can be established between smart artefacts, and how users can retain control over artefact interconnection.  ...  Acknowledgements The Smart-Its project is funded in part by the Commission of the European Union (contract IST-2000-25428), and by the Swiss Federal Office for Education and Science (BBW 00.0281).  ...

Privacy, Trust and Identity in Pervasive Computing: A Review of Technical Challenges and Future Research Directions

Ameera Al-Karkhi
2012 International Journal of Distributed and Parallel systems  
We then present a number of security related considerations and use them as a basis for comparison between pervasive and traditional computing.  ...  Computers in such environments work in the background while establishing connections among them dynamically and hence will be less visible and intrusive.  ...  Establishing user identity requires a measure of trust (accuracy) in the process of verification as an indication of the system confidence in the user established identity.  ...

Trust Context Spaces: An Infrastructure for Pervasive Security in Context-Aware Environments [chapter]

Philip Robinson, Michael Beigl
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It is then the means by which we seek to limit access to items or knowledge that have some value to us. The extremities of these limitations range from oneself to a group of trusted peers.  ...  Otherwise, this results in imbalances between the physical and virtual worlds, which leads to "windows of vulnerability".  ...  We therefore had to implement a Bridge between the Smart-Its communications protocols and the Ethernet/IP network to which the environment services are connected.  ...

Guiying Du, Auriol Degbelo, Christian Kray
2017 Proceedings of the 6th ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays - PerDis '17
