Abstract

This report describes the problem area and the goals of the project Object and Service-Based Security. The Swedish Armed Forces has decided to move towards a Service Oriented Architecture in the development of new command and control systems. This is the natural direction to follow as peace-keeping missions in coalitions with NATO or EU has become more common. The strength of Service Oriented Architectures is the ability to scale and adapt to new events and environments. The security environment in service oriented architecture is complex. A service is an application of technology and processes, which varies by the use of the service. There is a need for a security solution which has the benefits of the service oriented architecture. This project will explore the ability to transform part of the host-based security into a distributed IT/IS-security service. As a service, IT/IS-security would be more scalable and, in future systems, provide a more dynamic network.
