Title: Security Policy Management for Handheld Devices
Published: June 01, 2003
Abstract: The adoption of wireless technologies and handheld devices is becoming widespread in business, industry, and government organizations. The use of handheld devices introduces new risks to existing enterprise computing resources. Therefore, organizations require new strategies to mitigate the security risks associated with the integration of wireless technologies into existing computing environments. In this paper, we describe a framework for managing user privileges on handheld devices. Our framework aims at assisting enterprise security officers in creating, distributing, and enforcing group and individual security policies for Personal Digital Assistants, and helping users to automatically comply with their organization's security policy. Details of a proof-of-concept implementation of the framework are also provided.
