Abstract

Location and Context Aware Computing are playing an important role within the field of networks and telecommunications. Consequently, the ability to determine the exact location of a device on the Internet can not only optimise the shipment of data from end-toend,but additionally lead to innovative location based services. Such services include increased security of online banking application, e-commerce applications, and the ability to deny user access to a network infrastructure from predefined locations. At present, themajority of such systems do not have adequate security mechanisms in place to deal with malicious/potential attacks on data and fraud. In addition, the ability to perform such attacks has increased with the rapid growth of the network and telecommunicationstechnology, as users can perform such actions from the comfort of their own home. This work proposes the use of a location determination system, such as GPS andcontext data from Personal Area Networks (PAN) to build a ‘profile’ of incoming requests to an online service. The NetSecure framework will provide a programming API to enable it to be accessed by any Internet applications requiring enhanced security. The adaption of location-awareness and the ability to ‘profile’ people and environments via PAN’s willenhance the security aspects of applications through the added location awareness capability.
