Delivering individualized services that conform to the user’s current situation will form the focus of ubiquitous environments. A description of the networked environment at a semantic level will necessitate contextually oriented knowledge acquisition methods. This then engenders unique challenges for the crucial step of resource discovery. A number of service discovery protocols exist to perform this role. In this paper, we identify the requirements inherent for such an environment and investigate the suitability of the available protocols against these. A suitable candidate solution is proposed with an implementation with semantic extensions and reference points for further enhancements.
