Service discovery, an essential building block of nomadic and ubiquitous computing applications, needs to be secured to be effectively deployed. Centralized and decentralized approaches have been proposed to this end. This paper analyzes the application layer secure matching function using a Markovian performance model in order to analyze the effects of DoS attacks in centralized and decentralized service discovery systems and to assess anti-clogging mechanisms as a protection against such
