An Approach for Enhancing the Security of Remotely Accessible, Sensitive Services with On-Site Monitoring

Tuomas Kekkonen, Teemu Kanstrén
Commonly, the deployment environment of software based services cannot be predicted in advance, which leads to need to have specific solutions to monitor their security and reliability during runtime. These services are also commonly accessed remotely, leading to further complexity in their monitoring and analysis. The work presented in this paper proposes a solution for enhanced security monitoring of such services, providing for increased confidence in the service security and reliability.
