Abstract

The increasing ubiquity of context aware services and systems has been primarily underpinned by the use of centralised servers employing protocols that do no scale well for real time distribution and acquisition of neither sensor data nor dependent services. Any shift from this generic sensor framework mandated a new thinking where sensor data was capable of being propagated in real time using protocols and data models which serve to reduce unnecessary communication overhead. DCXP is proposed as an alternative architecture for the real time distribution of context information to ubiquitous mobile services. As a P2P based distributed protocol, it inherently poses the challenge of user anonymity across the system. In this paper we briefly present DCXP along with further work to enable the anonymised dissemination of sensor information within the architecture. Such a solution would have a negligible impact on the overall scalability and performance of DCXP.
