To facilitate thousands of hand held device users' lookup for services anywhere anytime, the importance of a resource discovery scheme in pervasive computing environments cannot be overlooked. The incorporation of security, adaptability, fault tolerance, and efficiency features is the quest for long but there is no existing resource discovery scheme that can be claimed as "the solution". In this paper, we propose the design of such a discovery mechanism named SAFE-RD, which is an integral part of our on-going research project MARKS (Adaptive Middleware for Resource discovery, Knowledge usability and Self-healing) with illustrative examples.
