Security Implications of Interoperability

Security Implications of Interoperability
Security Implications of Interoperability
The presented paper investigates the relationship between interoperability and system security. This is mainly an optimisation problem, since making a system interoperable means that some APIs need to be exposed, which can potentially open the system to malicious attacks. The paper explores the use of the System Security Modeller (SSM) tool which allows an assessment of the cost of interoperability by calculating the security risks. The security implications of interoperability are illustrated through a case study representing a smart manufacturing scenario.

Abstract

The presented paper investigates the relationship between interoperability and system security. This is mainly an optimisation problem, since making a system interoperable means that some APIs need to be exposed, which can potentially open the system to malicious attacks. The paper explores the use of the System Security Modeller (SSM) tool which allows an assessment of the cost of interoperability by calculating the security risks. The security implications of interoperability are illustrated through a case study representing a smart manufacturing scenario.
