Personal Network (PN) is an emerging concept which combines pervasive computing and strong user focus. The idea is that the user's personal devices organize themselves in a secure and private personal network transparently of their geographical location. This paper studies a PN architecture where devices form clusters using shared key cryptography over short range radio links on an ad hoc manner and where the otherwise isolated clusters are interconnected over the IP infrastructure using dynamic tunneling. This paper describes work undertaken in the context of the FP6-IST-IP-507102 'My personal Adaptive Global Net' IST-MAGNET project. MAGNET is a worldwide R&D project within Mobile & Wireless Communication beyond 3G.
