Ambient environments foster a lifestyle of permanent, yet unconscious interaction with unobtrusive technology surrounding the user. One of the main challenges in this field is to avoid ambient environments turning into a tool for perfect surveillance and control. The EU funded project Hydra aims at developing a middleware for ambient environments bringing forward mechanisms for security, privacy and trust. This paper introduces the security approaches, following the principles virtualization, loosely coupled services and semantics. After a brief introduction to the security challenges of ambient environments and the Hydra architecture, we will describe our solution for communication security, an approach to a privacy-preserving addressing scheme, the benefit of using semantic descriptions for security purposes and the integration of trust models.
