Abstract
Nowadays, portable electronic devices allow users to access available resources wherever they
are. In this sense, announcement and discovering of services and resources are two central
problems to be solved in ubiquitous computing. Despite the fact that many service and resource
discovery protocols exist, they are limited to a concrete network technology and most of them do not
face mobility and security requirements for a global and ubiquitous solution. In this paper the
authors introduce a Multiprotocol Service Discovery solution for heterogeneous networks and
describe their work for including security as a main goal of the proposal.
