[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Our proposed simple device authentication framework (1) aims to provide device-oriented authentication and authorization mechanisms for non-PC Internet-ready information appliances. The purpose of the framework is to prevent device spoofing, and to restrict unauthorized access to the device in a future ubiquitous network. We have developed the novel smart card software to achieve peer to peer device-oriented PKI authentication and authorization on the secure tamper-resistant smart card. We assume that the smart card will be attached to a device such as an information appliance. In this paper, we show the prototype implementation of authentication middleware using our novel smart card software and the IKEv1 program. The IKEv1 program cooperates with our novel smart card software to achieve peer to peer production-level identity authentication for devices. Thus, our framework and its application shown in this paper will help to realize secure ubiquitous computing for Internet-ready home appliances.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In future ubiquitous networks, devices that accept any connections over a network will need to verify the identity of a connecting peer to prevent device spoofing. In this paper, we propose an authentication framework not for human beings, but for devices. The proposed Simple Device Authentication Framework has the advantages of realizing both production-level identity using serial numbers initialized by the manufacturer, and owner-level personalized device attributes set up by users. Our proposed framework employs smart card technology to add an authentication function to a device such as an information appliance with a poor user interface. We have implemented the core component of this framework- novel smart card software and its configuration tools- to achieve device-oriented authentication.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Many peoples are using the Internet and many types of devices have emarged. In this situation, a single user wants to continue to work in anytime and anywhere. Current contents service targets specific devices, so that it cannot support many different types of devices. To realize continuous and transparent services, we propose a new model of ASP. In our proposed model, User Agent and Application Agent can work together to provide service continuity and device transparency. Then, we implemented a prototype based on this model and evaluated our model. As a conclution, our model could provide continuous and device transparent service. 1
