This paper proposes a model for large-scale smartphone based sensor networks, with sensor information processed by clouds and grids, with a mediation layer for processing, filtering and other mashups done via a brokering network. Final aggregate results are assumed to be sent to users through traditional cloud interfaces such as browsers. The authors conjecture that such a network configuration will have significant sensing applications, and perform some preliminary work in both defining the system, and considering threats to the system as a whole from different perspectives.
