There is an increasing need to secure electronic communication. This need is being met on workstations and servers, which have large amounts of memory, and a dedicated network connection. Securing communication in mobile devices is a relatively new research area, and has different requirements than workstations and servers. This project attempts to address these new requirements by incorporating security into the Many-to-Many Invocation (M2MI) library developed at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Specifically, this project addresses adding encryption and decryption of M2MI method invocations using session keys. It also addresses the methods of establishing and maintaining session keys based on communicating members sharing a common group authentication key. This project leaves the establishment and maintenance of the common group authentication key(s) as a separate step, outside the scope of this project.
