This event is part of a lecture series supported by the IT Academy and within the framework of the European Cyber Security Month. Please feel free to forward the lecture information to any interested parties.

Title: Security in Pervasive Computing Systems

Speaker: Dr Christian Jensen, Technical University of Denmark

Location: X-213 (TUT social sciences building, Akadeemia 3, right next to the library)

Time: 1400-1530, 12th of November


The proliferation of mobile computing and communication equipment over the past decade, means that the computing context is changing from a predominantly stationary environment, to an environment where users are provided access to the organisation's computing resources from a number of mobile devices, where some of them may even be privately owned by the user (this paradigm is known as Bring Your Own Device or BYOD). This means that he organisation's security perimeter is extended into environments where the organisation has little or no physical or operational control. Moreover, users may encounter and interact with other users outside the context of their own environment, which means that neither of the user's security infrastructures will be available to mediate their secure interactions. As the organisation's security perimeter has to be penetrated on a regular basis to accommodate this pervasive computing behaviour, the traditional security paradigm based on strong perimeter security has to be reconsidered.


Dr.Jensen holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France), an M.Sc. in computer science from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and an M.A. (jure officii) from Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). He is an associate professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics & Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark, where he teaches and conducts research in the area of security in open distributed systems. For the past 15 years, he has focused on trust-based methods and technologies to secure collaboration among entities in open distributed system. This work addresses all 3 As in AAA: Authentication technologies and entity recognition; Access control policies and mechanisms; and Accountability through reputation and recommendation systems.
