Ontologies in the e-Government Domain

Kategorie: eGovernment

During the past years, ontology-based concepts have gained importance especially in the context of applications related to the Semantic Web. In addition, these concepts are currently in the focus of various research activities. The capability to amend stored and processed data by a semantic dimension enables numerous use cases and fields of application.

Secure Integration in the Cloud

Kategorie: IT-Security

Novel product category related to cloud integration platforms (iPaaS) provides additional value to customers by integrating a diverse range of cloud services offered by third-parties. This way, the service providers of iPaaS deliver a cloud service that composes, integrates and reuses a range of different products and services offered by other providers or organisations. This concept assumes that the interactions, data-flows and service consumptions take place in a complex environment that spans across several domains. The resulting complexity, however, extends the attack surface and increases the security risk of these interactions. This is especially important to consider for cross-domain interactions, where the service provider may have access to broader range of user’s service than necessary to accomplish the task.

The paper that deals with the topic of secure integration in the cloud has been presented on 7th April, in the scope of ACM SAC 2016 conference. In this work we particularly considered the aspects of protocols, integration platforms, and security requirements in the case of the relevant building block of a typical integration platform.
