Ubiquitous Computing (UC) paradigm foresees seamless integration of communicating and computational devices and applications embedded in all parts of life - homes, offices, school, hospital, an so on. However, there are many problems and major challenges awaiting for us to solve such as the security risks in ubiquitous resource sharing, which could be occurred when data resources are connected and accessed by anyone in UC. Therefore, security issues should be appropriately addressed in UC.
UC-Sec 09 is intended to foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art research in the area of UC security technology. The main aim of UC-Sec workshop is to provide a forum for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in methods and technology concerning the identification of risks, the definition of security policies, and the development of security measures for UC. In UC-Sec 09, we plan to publish high quality papers, which cover the various security issues in UC.
