Privacy-Aware Service Integration

Pierre Parrend, Stephane Frenot, Sebastian Hohn
2007 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Services  
Since guaranteeing privacy inside the system is of little help if any malicious entity can break into it, a security architecture for OSGi based Extensible Service Systems is also defined.  ...  Privacy mechanisms exist for monolithic systems. However, pervasive environments that gather user data to support advanced services provide little control over the data an individual releases.  ...  Conclusion and Perspectives We have presented a security architecture, formalization and classification of meta-data for hybrid service systems.  ...

A Contract-based Approach for Secure Service Discovery Systems

A. Nait-Sidi-Moh, M. Bakhouya, M. Wack
2007 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Services  
In this paper, a contract-based approach for monitoring and controlling accesses to services in ubiquitous environments is presented.  ...  In this approach, client agents and server agents are bounded by contracts: the server agent expects that the client agent will not attempt to access other services than those it required, and the client  ...  In section 2, related work of secure service discovery systems is presented. Section 3 presents a contract-based model for service discovery systems.  ...
