Hi Andreas,

devices without any people operating them? I have not seen this in the last 
20 years but that may be a very interesting concept. Sounds a bit like Since 
Fiction anyhow - but I'am always eager to learn more ;-)

Regards, Sven-Ola

What if you have devices running without any people operating them, and (of 
course) no e-mail addresses? Automatic generation and updating of keys, and 
authentication of devices and data, is a pre-requisite in many network 
systems. An automatic system does not necessary mean a centralized system.
