Abstract

Internet has made possible the development of software as services, consumed on demand and developed by third parties. In this sense, a quality model is necessary to enable evaluation and, consequently, reuse of the services by consumers. In this way, this paper proposes a quality model based on the ISO 9126 standard, defining a set of attributes and metrics for an effective evaluation of Web services. A XML-based representation model was created to support this quality model, and a security schema was proposed to guarantee integrity and authenticity of the model.
