Privacy- und Sicherheitsaspekte in ubiquitären Umgebungen

A friend of mine, Stefan Schlott, has written his thesis about privacy and security aspects in ubiquitous environments (in German).

He tackles the problem of being untraceable although carrying devices with protocol-specific unique identifications and the problem of peering without revealing private data.

One of his achievements was the invention of a cryptographic protocol for peer recognition under changed pseudonyms, which keeps the identities of the peers secret.
