& There is a plethora of different security standards proposed by a range of standards consortia, including the IETF, W3C, and OASIS. There are also sometimes multiple configuration settings for a given security specification. In a heterogeneous open service environment, the variety of security standards and possible settings used can hinder security interoperability, because a common security configuration may not be able to be agreed upon in advance. In this paper, we have developed a 10

We have applied this model to support security discovery and dynamic security reconfiguration for use within open service infrastructures.
