Abstract

Most authentication protocols designed for ubiquitous computing environments try to solve the problem of intuitive, scalable, secure authentication of wireless communication. Due to the diversity of requirements, protocols tend to be implemented within specific research prototypes and can not be used easily in other applications. We propose to develop a common toolkit for ubiquitous device authentication to foster wide usability of research results. This paper outlines design goals and presents a first, freely available implementation.
