Users of handheld devices may want to share services resources with each other in pervasive computing environment. Availability of information regarding users may lead to privacy violations while communicating with others for services and resources. Providing a model to resolve this issue in centralized or distributed environment is not desirable or not feasible if we really want to achieve ubiquity. In this paper, we present a privacy aware model for resource sharing in pervasive computing environment with an illustrative example. Our model exploits the concepts of policies and ordered binary decision diagrams.
