Finding secure compositions of software services: Towards a pattern based approach

Pino, L. & Spanoudakis, G. (2012). Finding secure compositions of software services: Towards a pattern based approach. 2012 5th International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security - Proceedings of NTMS 2012 Conference and Workshops, pp. 1-5. doi: 10.1109/ntms.2012.6208741


In service based systems, there is often a need to replace services at runtime as they become either unavailable or they no longer meet required quality or security properties. In such cases, it is often necessary to build compositions of services that can replace a problematic service because no single service with a sufficient match to it can be located. In this paper, we present an approach for building compositions of services that can preserve required security properties. Our approach is based on the use of secure composition patterns which are applied in connection with basic discovery mechanisms to build secure service compositions.
