Diabetes, Mobile Pervasive Environment, Pervasive m-Healthcare, Security Assurance, and Trust Management.


Vision of pervasive computing includes wireless communication and information processing anywhere, anytime
using mobile sensor devices connected seamlessly. Pervasive environment characterized by highly dynamic,
open and diverse infrastructure where resource-restricted dissimilar mobile objects have the ability of Ad-hoc
network set-up, self-organization and cooperation for information exchange and distributed operation unknown
by the user. In such open computing environments, traditional security schemes and encryption algorithms
cannot be always applied to address the security assurance challenges. Therefore, concepts of trust and
reputation evaluation emerged by researchers. In addition to that in human-centric healthcare applications,
reliability and trustworthiness between communicating nodes, quality of information assessment cannot be
effectively ensured through hard security concerns. Thus soft security analysis becomes an important aspect for
enhancing the security assurance and degree of trust in ICT enabled application and services where information
is ubiquitous. In our proposed research work, we explore existing pervasive security and trust methods to assess
the challenging gap. We put forward need of soft security and proposed a trust metric for trust based security
assessment with classical clustering technique for energy-efficient resource restricted trusted and secure
communication. Major security attacks and impact of signal strength on security for unnoticed pervasive
services also evaluated. In winding up, we present pervasive healthcare application framework especially
focused to awareness and quality remote care for diabetes, to realize and validate the conceptual model with
case study.
