Mobcom, a mobile companion

There is undoubtedly an increasing trend towards mobile communications and mobile applications. Due to their multiple capabilities, mobile devices such as smartphones are an ideal platform for protecting and managing our multiple identities for a broad range of applications and services (e.g., e-commerce, e-health, and e-government). For this purpose, however, several security, privacy, and technological challenges need to be addressed. The Mobile Companion (MobCom) project tries to overcome such challenges and to transform mobile devices into powerful, flexible and user friendly tools to manage our identities in a privacy-friendly way. The mobile companion will become the natural user interface in a ubiquitous computing environment, through which users will access services and perform their daily transactions. The MobCom project focuses on 6 research areas: (1) policies, policy languages, policy enforcement, (2) cryptographic protocols, (3) user and device attestation, (4) system architecture, (5) profiling, and (6) application design methodology.
