Abstract:
Peer-to-Peer (P2P)-based application provisioning in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication systems offers the possibility to integrate the end user for realisation of M2M applications considering the individual requirements without the use of centralised instances. Despite many advantages, this flexible methodology of M2M application provisioning does not consider the opportunity of testing the new created and provisioned applications. Moreover, it does not pay attention to security concerns. This publication presents a novel concept for automated testing of P2P connected M2M networks. Different challenges and requirements for testing are defined and a novel testing architecture for functional testing is introduced. Also, this publication evaluates different security problems inside the P2P-based M2M application (P2P4M2M) framework and introduces the importance of trust for ensuring security. To overcome the security drawbacks of P2P4M2M, this publication presents a novel concept for securing services and applications using the integration of a trust management system.
