AUTONOMIC TRUST MANAGEMENT FOR A PERVASIVE SYSTEM

Zheng Yan

Abstract

A pervasive system allows seamless interactions among various portable and networked processing devices, distributed at all scales throughout everyday routine life. In such an open and dynamic environment, trust becomes a crucial issue to ensure effective collaborations among various devices in order to provide expected services. Many existing trust management solutions for the pervasive systems did not support autonomic control that automatically manages trust requested by a trustor device on a trustee device for the fulfillment of an intended service. This greatly influences the effectiveness of trust management. In this paper, we propose an autonomic trust management solution for the pervasive system on the basis of a trusted computing platform and an adaptive trust control model. We demonstrate how trust can be automatically managed and the effectiveness of our solution by applying it into an example pervasive system. Additional issues such as standardizing pervasive computing devices and implementation strategies are also discussed.
