An Integrated Access Control Service Enabler for Cloud Applications
Cost reducing, ubiquitous access, are foreseeable benefits when organizations outsourcing applications, services to the cloud. However, security is current major challenge that limits their widespread deployments. In this paper, a RESTful security service enabler is proposed to provide authentication, authorization and audit logging services for cloud application developers, by leveraging several important security standards (e.g. OAuth, XACML). Specifically, a prototype of this enabler is ongoing developed based on our requirement investigation in the health care domain and related Generic Enabler technologies in the FI-PPP (Future Internet Public Private Partnership) FIWARE Project.
