Security challenges of smart spaces, e.g., smart homes, smart buildings, and smart cities based on Internet connected devices and systems, are related to the main philosophy of smart environments; the freedom to use available devices for the purpose in hand of end-users, and to make it happen easily and hopefully without human-intervention. But what are the security solutions that promote the business and technology development of smart space owners, device manufacturers and smart application developers? Because information security is a cross-cutting issue of the software intensive systems, it needs extra-ordinary solutions for balancing userfriendliness and trust-worthy behaviour of smart environments. This paper introduces an approach and related solutions developed in an ongoing Artemis-EU project, Sofia, for secure-enabled smart environments and user-friendly adaptation in a situationbased manner. A list of topics to be discussed in the workshop is also introduced.
