Security Architecture for Federated Cooperative Information Systems

Pierre Bieber, Dominique Raujol & Pierre Siron

The paper describes the design and implementation of a security architecture for a Cooperative Information System implemented with CORBA technologies. We first define a role-based policy for a specific case study. We then show how this policy is enforced by an architecture made of a selection of commercial off the shelf components and a small number of developed components. Finally, we focus on the interoperability of the security architecture we have designed.
