To address the challenges posed by device capacity and capability, and also the nature of ad-hoc network of pervasive computing, a resource discovery model is needed that can resolve security and privacy issues with simple solutions. The use of complex algorithms and powerful fixed infrastructure is infeasible due to the volatile nature of pervasive environment and tiny pervasive devices. In this paper, we present a risk- aware trust based secure resource discovery model, RTSRD (risk-aware trust based secure resource discovery) for a truly pervasive environment. Our model is an adaptive hybrid one that allows both secure and non-secure discovery of services on adaptive trust. RTSRD also incorporates a risk model for sharing resources with unknown devices. Hence, the two contributions of this paper are: adaptive trust, and risk model for resource discovery in pervasive computing environments.
