Adam Bates, Wajih Ul Hassan, Kevin Butler, Alin Dobra, Bradley Reaves, Patrick Cable, Thomas Moyer, Nabil Schear
2017 Proceedings of the 26th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '17  
In this work, we present a transparent provenance-based approach for auditing web services through the introduction of Network Provenance Functions (NPFs).  ...  NPFs are a distributed architecture for capturing detailed data provenance for web service components, leveraging the key insight that mediation of an application's protocols can be used to infer its activities  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to Mugdha Kumar for her assistance with the extension of Linux Provenance Modules.  ...

Enabling privacy through transparency

Oshani Seneviratne, Lalana Kagal
2014 2014 Twelfth Annual International Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust  
PETS is built on open web standards and introduces the Provenance Tracking Network (PTN), an open global trusted network of peer servers, to the traditional web stack.  ...  To circumvent this issue, we have developed Privacy Enabling Transparent Systems (PETS) that makes transparency a key component in systems architectures.  ...  We put forward a proposal for the underlying architecture for PETS using a global network of peer servers dedicated to preserving provenance of data and usages called the Provenance Tracking Network, along  ...

The Impact of Web Services on Audit [chapter]

Cristina Buchholz
2003 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
In order to cope with the new audit requirements in a web service environment, one needs to deliver a concept for a collaborative, flexible, legislation compliant, application independent audit system.  ...  The technological key to open business environments is the use of web services. Web services are a loosely-coupled, standardized way of linking business logic across borders and platforms.  ...  Web-service security is about making sure that the integrity and confidentiality of messages is ensured as they are passed on via the Simple Object Access Protocol.  ...
