Dynamic and self organizing systems like those found in pervasive computing systems or semantic web based scenarios raise numerous challenges regarding security and privacy. Service discovery is a basic feature of SOA deployment in such systems, given that entities need to locate services they can describe without an a priory knowledge. After inherent threats to service discovery in ubiquitous networks, we propose a registry based solution in which contextaware security policies are enforced in
