This workplan correspond to the Summer Semester
Research program where students choose a topic and they should investigate
it. It is
of 7 milestones where they have to learn about the state of the art
in the topic selected achieving some goals and they have to present a
work at the end.
When a transaction
between two entities needs to be done, both entities will need some information
While current approaches relies on the client/server approach where one
of the two entities is registered on the other, Automated Trust Negotiation
denotes the process where both parties ask and disclose information whenever
it is needed according to their own policies.
The chosen topic consist on the integration of Web Services
in the Peertrust prototype. Current implementation make use of Secure
Sockets Layer (SSL) for interchange of messages. However, an integration
in Web Services (where SAML is becoming the standard) could help the
interoperability between different systems.
