Framework For Highlighting Critical Security Issues In A Mobile Computing Paradigm
Mobile Computing is the use of a portable computer capable of wireless networking - is already revolutionising the way we use computers. More and more users and businesses employ smartphones as communication tools, but also as a means of planning and organising their work and private life. Within companies, these technologies are causing profound changes in the organisation of information systems and therefore they have become the source of new risks. Indeed, smartphones collect and compile an increasing amount of sensitive information to which access must be controlled to protect the privacy of the user and the intellectual property of the company. I hereby discuss operational and security issues arising from the use of mobile components in mobile ICT systems. I argue that mobile agents can be used to overcome intrinsic problems of wireless networking. I define the operational framework of a mobile computing environment, where I plan to demonstrate our proposed solutions. This paper introduces the conceptual view of mobile computing, its achievements, challenges and opportunities. In recent years, mobile computing has become the focus of vigorous research efforts in various areas of computer science and engineering. Consequently, the aim of this paper is to evaluate mobile security by identifying distinct security requirements and secondly, to design a viable solution that eliminates these potential and evolving threats.
