Abstract: The rapid growth of personal communications has increased the need for user interaction and communication in a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) fashion together with the need for protection against security threats and the corresponding need for trust establishment schemes. In this paper, the concept of Personal Network Federation (PN-F) is discussed, and the related security and privacy threats are presented together with solutions taken out of the academic bibliography and research project results. The paper concludes with a reference to the need for privacy protection as a counterforce for complete release of personal information in order to support true personalised service provision.
