IEEE 2010 International Workshop on Web Service and Business Process Security
(WSBPS 2010)

to be held at the
 6th World Congress on Services (IEEE SERVICES 2010)
 July 5–10, 2010, Miami, Florida, USA


Workshop Topics

Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web Services promise flexible process integration in heterogeneous environments. Existing development approaches tend to focus on enterprise application integration scenarios rather than on business-to-business (B2B) scenarios, although due to the increasing heterogeneity of applications in an inter-organizational context, the most significant benefits in terms of competitiveness and cost reduction can be expected from implementing SOAs for B2B integration.

In such scenarios the processes involve both invoking business services provided by different organizations, e.g. in supply chain management and operation, and accessing horizontal shared services, e.g. run-time support for searching and selecting business services based on their SLAs in dynamic orchestration.
Inter-organization orchestrations of business processes creates high needs regarding security. This includes message protection, access control, identity and policy management. Although a large number of specifications (including XACML, SAML, and the WS-* family) for Web Service security exists, general problems especially in the context of compositions of services are still unsolved. Additionally, the complexity of these specifications and issues with insufficient implementations often lead to ineffective, inefficient, unreliable, or non-interoperable security solutions.

With this in mind, the target of this workshop is to bring together researchers and industry practitioners that are engaged in all kinds of security issues of Web Services and service-based business processes. It is intended to be a forum for presenting and exchanging new ideas, discussing problems with existing specifications, and exploring new fields in these hot topics.

Contributions may cover, but are not limited to the following topics:
