In this paper, the authors present PATRIOT, optimized, policy-driven security architecture for protecting the confidentiality and integrity of audit log files on wireless devices. PATRIOT is based on a set of well-known cryptographic protocols and is designed to suit the limited nature of wireless devices. It offers a policy-driven, customizable security model and specifies a flexible, multi-level, and fine-grained encryption methodology that provides the suitable security strength without compromising performance. PATRIOT is designed in a platform-neutral manner and it can be deployed on a wide range of wireless devices and operating systems.
