The deployment of pervasive computing systems inevitably raises security concerns. The ability of such systems to synthesise partial information and react to situations without explicit user interaction, confirmation or consent means that issues of trust, safety and privacy become exceptionally important. We examine the general issues inherent in any pervasive computing system, focusing on the hazards that emerge from the interactions between different forms of context. We apply this analysis to one particular context-aware infrastructure, and use this to derive some important research topics for future investigation.
