Research visions of ambient computing promise seamless co-existence of technology and user in such a way that the environment adapts to user context. This adaptivity also means more extensive information disclosure, hence the security concerns become paramount. While new architectures should be able to provide security as a basic feature, they also need to take into account the way users behave and experience the system, as users are not likely to be interested in technical details and configurations, but instead in the added value they can get.
