Towards Benchmarking Intrusion Detection Systems for Virtualized Cloud Environments (extended abstract)

Abstract Many recent research works propose novel architectures of intrusion detection systems specifically designed to operate in virtualized environments. However, little attention has been given to the evaluation and benchmarking of such architectures with respect to their performance and dependability. … Continue reading

Towards Formal Specification of Non-functional Properties for Provenance Awareness

Abstract Web service composition is an important topic. Typically, no single service can fulfil all user requirements for a system. Specifying and analysing the non-functional properties (NFPs) is essential to successful service composition. Only where NFPs have been specified, can … Continue reading

Improving the Quality of Distributed Composite Service Applications

Abstract Dynamic service composition promotes the on-the-fly creation of value-added applications by combining services. Large scale, dynamic distributed applications, like those in the pervasive computing domain, pose many obstacles to service composition such as mobility, and resource availability. In such … Continue reading
