|siesta -- SessIon layEr SecuriTy Approach discussion list.
The present end-to-end application security context is tightly coupled with the underlying communication context. This is problematic for at least three reasons. First, it is not flexible: when the underlying communication context changes, the application security context must change, too. Second, in certain applications, the overhead associated with such coupling is prohivitively expensive over constrained networks (such as sensor- or cellular networks). Third, and probably most important, an attack on the communication context immediately effects the application security.
