DAIDALOS is a European project funded under the Sixth Framework, which aims to integrate a range of heterogeneous networks and to develop pervasive systems on top of them to provide the user with transparent access to personalised communication and information services in a complex environment. Security and privacy are key to the development of such a system. This paper addresses some major questions on how to build trust and confidence in complex environments of pervasive systems where many entities play different roles, mostly for some limited amount of time, and where a significant amount of personal related data travel through the network to deliver highly personalised services.
