The main endeavour of this book is threat analysis and activity modelling of attacks in order to give an actual view of the ubiquitous computing applications. The unique approach will help readers for a better understanding.
This book presents the latest research findings, methods and development techniques, challenges and solutions concerning UPC from both theoretical and practical perspectives, with an emphasis on innovative, mobile and Internet services. With the proliferation of wireless technologies and electronic devices, there is a rapidly growing interest in Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing (UPC), which makes it possible to create a human-oriented computing environment in which computer chips are embedded in everyday objects and interact with the physical world. Through UPC, people can go online even while moving around, thus enjoying nearly permanent access to their preferred services. Though it has the potential to revolutionize our lives, UPC also poses a number of new research challenges.

The Internet has gone from an Internet of people to an Internet of Things (IoT). This has brought forth strong levels of complexity in handling interoperability that involves the integrating of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) into IoT. This book offers insights into the evolution, usage, challenges, and proposed countermeasures associated with the integration. Focusing on the integration of WSNs into IoT and shedding further light on the subtleties of such integration, this book aims to highlight the encountered problems and provide suitable solutions. It throws light on the various types of threats that can attack both WSNs and IoT along with the recent approaches to counter them. This book is designed to be the first choice of reference at research and development centers, academic institutions, university libraries, and any institution interested in the integration of WSNs into IoT. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, Ph.D. scholars, industry technologists, young entrepreneurs, and researchers working in the field of security and privacy in IoT are the primary audience of this book.
In distributed, open systems like cyberspace, where the behavior of autonomous agents is uncertain and can affect other agents' welfare, trust management is used to allow agents to determine what to expect about the behavior of other agents. The role of trust management is to maximize trust between the parties and thereby provide a basis for cooperation to develop. Bringing together expertise from technology-oriented sciences, law, philosophy, and social sciences, Managing Trust in Cyberspace addresses fundamental issues underpinning computational trust models and covers trust management processes for dynamic open systems and applications in a tutorial style that aids in understanding. Topics include trust in autonomic and self-organized networks, cloud computing, embedded computing, multi-agent systems, digital rights management, security and quality issues in trusting e-government service delivery, and context-aware e-commerce applications. The book also presents a walk-through of online identity management and examines using trust and argumentation in recommender systems. It concludes with a comprehensive survey of anti-forensics for network security and a review of password security and protection. Researchers and practitioners in fields such as distributed computing, Internet technologies, networked systems, information systems, human computer interaction, human behavior modeling, and intelligent informatics especially benefit from a discussion of future trust management research directions including pervasive and ubiquitous computing, wireless ad-hoc and sensor networks, cloud computing, social networks, e-services, P2P networks, near-field communications (NFC), electronic knowledge management, and nano-communication networks.
