SECURITY PATTERNS, TOWARDS A FURTHER LEVEL

Abstract

Traditionally, security patterns have successfully been used to describe security and dependability (S\&D) solutions, making them available to system engineers not being security experts. Recently, in the SERENITY research project, the notion of S\&D pattern was extended to exact specifications of re-usable S\&D mechanisms for Ambient Intelligence (AmI) systems. SERENITY is focused in AmI systems, but its results can be applied to other computer paradigms: grids, distributed computing, etc. SERENITY S\&D patterns include information about both the S\&D properties that the solution satisfies and the requirements on the context conditions. Along this paper, we describe how abstract S\&D solutions can be implemented by means of functional S\&D services. In order to do that, our approach is based on the use of SERENITY S\&D patterns, and their implementations, called ExecutableComponents. Finally, we propose several examples and we prove their potential application to AmI scenarios.
