Special Issue on

Data and Security Issues in Web Services


As an architectural style for building software applications using service components available in a network, Services-oriented architecture (SOA) has made a major impact on distributed computing research. SOA is usually realized through Web services, which is defined as the self-contained, self-describing, modular application that provides business functionality across the Web.

The recent growing requirement on data and security issues from business and society, calls for more effective methodologies and tools for Web services: from the perspective of service construction, in order to construct an intelligent service which can effectively perceive the individual behavior, identify and satisfy the individual requirements, Web service should be highly dependent on data acquisition and data processing. From the perspective of service utilization, the associated service resources change dynamically as they are being used, and this could result in abnormal service status which may further affect the service quality and system security.

In this special issue, we solicit original work in all areas of Web services. In particular, we seek original work on identifying new research and development challenges and developing new techniques and algorithms in data processing and security in Web services. Specific topics include, but not limited to, the following:

· Access control and authentication

· Computer forensics

· Information assurance

· Network recovery

· Security Systems & Services

· Web-based service monitoring and management

· Network security management

· Network survivability

· Malicious software

· Privacy-preserving secure protocols

· Semantic Web services

· Networking aspects of Web and cloud computing

· Secure communication

· Secure network protocols

· Context-Aware interactions

· Content and service delivery

· Wireless Web security

· Web service-based architectures and applications
