Trust Without Identification
This extended abstract describes an alternative to trusting individual nodes in pervasive systems, which is to exploit the diversity of nodes in such systems to build application ensembles that are collectively trustworthy. These configurations are resilient to high levels of attack, and are not dependent on large pre-distribution key-spaces.
