Security and legal challenges for wearable computing: a case study
2008 (English)In: Smart Event '08, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper discusses IT- and information security and legal challenges for wearable computing encountered during the wearIT@work project. The following novel ideas are introduced in this paper: authorization by proximity using dynamic context information to enable transfer of authorization from one party to another, using dynamic context information to enable transfer of authorization from one party to another,a wearable pairing mechanism to use devices on other wearables, and a more intelligent management of dynamic IT-security policies to reduce computational overhead on wearable devices having limited to reduce computational overhead on wearable devices having limited capabilities. The last idea includes the importance of having a dynamic security baseline adapted to wearables to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the body network as well as the privacy of the wearers´ personal and biometric information.
