A SECURE project investigated the design of security mechanisms for pervasive computing based on trust. It talks about how entities in unfamiliar pervasive computing environments can overcome initial suspicion to provide secure collaboration. It is suggested that demand for applications such as collaborative gaming, where players in different locations can participate in the same gaming session using portable devices, is increasing with the passing time. Initial results of testing this prototype implementation show that it reacts correctly to changes in an entity's interactive behavior.
