Abstract

Recent advancement in XML and increasing use of World Wide Web allow users to use internet as a document sharing and hosting system, with certain security features. Currently no guidelines are available for developers to enforce security policies for XML and Web Services. It is crucial in order to facilitate a secure dissemination of XML documents, containing information of different sensitivity levels, among (possibly large) user communities. The paper concentrates on developing a framework and proposing design considerations to implement the PKI enables security in XML documents and web services, by defining a component model and processing rules that can be shared across applications using common tools, avoiding the need for extensive customisation of applications to add security. This allows interoperability with a wide range of existing infrastructures and across deployments.
