Personal network directory service

Abstract

Personal Network (PN) is an emerging computer networking concept where security and privacy of communications as well as user centricity are emphasised. In this article we put forward a novel web service called Personal Network Directory Service (PNDS) that provides user authentication in the Internet by acting as a trusted third party and certificate store. This is required to facilitate authenticated inter-PN communications. In addition, we propose a method for building PN federations where a group of PNDS users share a secure virtual packet network. We demonstrate via concrete screenshots how user creates a PNDS account, gets a PN certificate, and finally joins a PN federation.
