Personal Networks: Wireless Networking for Personal Devices focuses on networking and security aspects of Personal Networks (PNs). Given a single user, the authors propose an architecture for PNs in which devices are divided into one of two types of nodes: personal nodes and foreign nodes. Furthermore, the authors demonstrate the ways in which PNs can be formed in a self-organized and secure way, how they can be interconnected using infrastructure networks, how to connect different multiple PNs, and how to share services and resources. In addition, the book shows how security and ease-of-use can be achieved through automatic configuration and how mobility can be supported through adaptability and self-organization. Covers personal networks, an emerging technology for seamless and secure networking between a user′s personal devices Describes PN network architecture and its various components in-depth Written by experts who developed this concept Discusses the newer topic of federations of PNs Considers potential PN applications, and demonstrates how such applications support systems, such as service discovery and context management ,which can improve the PN user experience Provides an insight into the challenges of future personal networking, architectures for PN, potential and important solutions, and their implications
