A Fair Non-repudiation Service in a Web Services Peer-to-Peer Environment

Abstract

“Non-repudiation”, a well known concept in security engineering, provides measures to ensure that participants in a communication process cannot later on deny of having participated in it. Such a concept is even more important in service oriented architectures (e.g. electronic billing). However, there is no sophisticated standard implementing fair Non-repudiation in such an environment. In this paper, we will introduce a framework providing fair Non-repudiation for Web service messages. It executes a previously specified protocol using Web services technology itself, but completely hides the protocol execution from the target Web services. To allow the integration of such security requirements already in an early phase of development, a model-driven configuration approach is used. Furthermore, the procedure is not tied to Non-repudiation protocols only, which means that a broad range of protocols can be integrated in a similar way. The framework presented in this paper leverages existing standards and protocols for an efficient adoption in service oriented architectures.
