Security challenges for wearable computing a case study John Lindström Lulea University of Technology, Sweden Centre for Distance-spanning Technology {john.lindstrom@cdt.ltu.se} Abstract This paper discusses IT- and information security challenges for wearable computing encountered during the WearIT@work project. The following novel ideas are introduced in this paper: authorization by proximity using dynamic context information to enable transfer of authorization from one party to another, a wearable pairing mechanism to use devices on other wearables, and a more intelligent management of dynamic IT-security policies to reduce computational overhead on wearable devices having limited capabilities. The last idea includes the importance of having a dynamic security baseline adapted to wearables to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the body network as well as the privacy of the wearers´ personal and biometric information. 1 Introduction Looking at the future, we need to find ways to improve work productivity, quality and safety. To enable the creation of more efficient work processes in areas where process innovation has been hard without the proper (wearable) supportive tools, we need new and better supportive technology. Many lines of work will not easily allow the workers to bring a computer in the form of a laptop or PDA due to the nature of their work where free or clean hands are required. For those there is a large potential in using wearable computers and systems. As wearable computers and systems get more mature and productified for different business needs, they can be used in a lot of work areas, where today there is none or very little IT-support. Wearable computers will most likely be used more and more – not only at work but also by people during spare time as the wearables, being very small and integrated in the clothing, will
