Conventional approaches to manage and control security seem to have reached their limits in new complex environments. These environments are open, dynamic, heterogeneous, distributed, self-managing, collaborative, international, nomadic, and ubiquitous. We are currently working on a middleware platform focused on the industrial needs, UBIWARE. UBIWARE integrates Ubiquitous Computing with Semantic Web, Distributed AI, Security and Privacy, and Enterprise Application Integration. In this paper, we describe our long-term vision for the security and privacy management in complex multi-agent systems like UBIWARE, SURPAS. The security infrastructure has to become pervasive, interoperable and intelligent enough to naturally fit UBIWARE. SURPAS aims at policy-based optimal collecting, composing, configuring and provisioning of security measures. Particularly, we analyze the security implications of UBIWARE, present the SURPAS research framework, and the SURPAS abstract architecture.
