This year the Seminar on Network Security was focusing on security and privacy in pervasive computing. Computing devices are constantly shrinking and becoming invisible parts of our everyday life. The devices we carry include increasing amounts of computing power, various wireless connectivity, and are more and more intelligent. The computing environment is becoming very dynamic, and moving into a decentralized and distributed direction with spontaneous connectivity. The devices are mobile, understand contexts and adapt to the environments the user moves in.

In this kind of dynamic environment with various service providers, and groups of users, security of the user's device and the services he wants to make use of become very challenging. Moreover, privacy of the user is a concern, and the handling of these countless keys and certificates becomes a serious usability problem for the average user.

These proceedings hold very interesting papers on a wide range of topics in pervasive computing. We have technical papers on protocol issues, for example, on NAT and firewall traversal and specific security protocols, and overview papers on security in wireless networks. Some other papers discuss wider architecture issues, such as, home networks, peer-to-peer systems, and authentication architectures. Furthermore, we also have papers on identity management and protection, and the privacy and ethics in pervasive computing.

A few papers in these proceedings are truly making new scientific contributions in the field, which is an excellent achievement for the students and their tutors. I'm looking forward to enjoying great presentations.

Finally, I would like to thank Laura Takkinen for being such a tremendous help in pulling this seminar together, and making sure everything goes smoothly and follows our schedule.
