Using Linked Data for Modeling Secure Distributed Web Applications and Services
Proceedings of 14th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE2014)
The increasing service orientation of today’s Web applications enables swift reaction on new customer needs by adjusting, extending or replacing parts of the Web application’s architecture. While this allows for an agile response to change, it is inappropriate when it comes to security. Security needs to be treated as a first thought throughout the entire lifecycle of a Web application. The recently proposed WAMplus approach does not only offer an expressive, extensible and easy-to-use way to model a Web application architecture, but also puts a strong emphasis on the security. In this paper we present an exemplary implementation of WAMplus using the Sociddea WebID identity management system known from prior work. There, we show how WebID is used to identify, describe and authenticate Web applications and services while taking their protection through WAC and fine-grained data filters into account.
