Context-aware service based on secure mobile agents

2002 , Pinsdorf, U. , Peters, J. , Hoffmann, M. , Gupta, P.

In this paper we introduce the concept of context-aware services as an extended form of locationbased services. We describe a new architecture for realizing context-aware services which has a number of key benefits. This architecture relays on mobile software agents as security-centric middleware. Our approach allows to combine disjunct databases by establishing applicationdependant links between remote data sets with a proprietary access. We describe all necessary roles and places to establish a multilateral security concept for all participants.
