P2P M-Commerce in Pervasive Environments
January 28, 2003
Pervasive environments are characterized by the presence of wireless devices ranging from sensors to mobile PDA-phones to laptops. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) information sharing in such environments presents a tremendous opportunity for people and devices to exchange information such as music, pictures, documents and stock tickers with peers. Information that has a monetary value introduces a whole new set of problems for P2P interaction in pervasive environments. In this work, we present the design of a middleware that attempts to solve these problems using concepts of the Contract Net Protocol, Semantic Service Discovery and secure transaction protocols.
