Security in collaborative peer groups is an active research topic. Most previous work focused on key management without addressing an important pre-requisite: admission control, i.e., how to securely admit a new member. This paper represents an initial attempt to sketch out an admission control framework suitable for different flavors of peer groups and match them with appropriate cryptographic techniques and protocols. Open problems and directions for future work are identified and discussed.
