Original Abstract

Trust can have its life-cycle and we can model it and utilize it for establishing secure environment for mobile environments. We assume that entities in the collaborating environment are mobile. It is not possible to perform entity enrollment. There is no globally trusted third party. Usual authentication mechanisms can not be used. We propose use of trust based on principal behaviour observations. The overall model has been devised with the SECURE project. The article makes a brief overview of the model and proposes specific approach for computation of trust values from observations. The method to be introduced is based on Dempster-Shafer theory of confirmation.
