Abstract:
The potential for rapid and diverse interconnectivity between devices utilising heterogeneous communications interfaces has enabled a truly ubiquitous computing environment. However this has resulted in equally ubiquitous security risks due principally to . the number and complexity of services being run over such networks. As technology advances towards the realisation of a ubiquitous computing environment, what impact does this have on the need to preserve the key information security requirements of: confidentiality: integrity and availability? And how does this influence, future information security solutions, particularly in light of 'always-on' business processes which require real-time information sharing? This thesis describes research conducted into answering these questions from a risk management perspective, using key industrial projects as case studies.
