Today, mobile platforms are multimedia devices that provide different types of traffic with the consequent particular performance demands and, besides, security concerns (e.g. privacy). However, security and QoS requirements quite often conflict to a large degree; the mobility and heterogeneous paradigm of the future internet makes coexistence even more difficult, posing new challenges to overcome. Probably, one of the main challenges is to identify the specific reasons why security and QoS mechanisms are so related to each other.
