Recent developments in the fields of hand-held devices, wireless communications, and sensor networks made pervasive computing more viable to our daily lives. These low cost devices still lack in computation power and resource management. To perform optimally, these devices depend on each other through resource sharing. This mutual inter device dependency creates some obvious issues related to security and privacy. Trust models are being proposed to solve how devices should interact with each other. Nonetheless, when there is such interaction involved, certain amounts of risks are always present. Hence, risk analysis before any interaction among entities arises as an integral part to trust decisions. In this thesis, we propose a risk model that takes into account different risk elements, exclusively encountered in pervasive computing environment to address the issue of risk awareness for trust models.
