Abstract
Web services are the new building block of today¡¯s Internet, and provides interoperability among heterogeneous distributed systems. Recently in web services environment, security has become one of the most critical issues. The hackers attack one of fragile point and can misuse legitimate user privilege because all of the connected devices provide services for the user control and monitoring in real time. Also, the users of web services must temporarily delegate some or all of their rights to agents in order to perform actions on their behalf. This fact risks the exposure of user privacy information. In this paper, we propose secure delegation model based on SAML that provides confidentiality and integrity about the user information in distributed systems. In order to support privacy protection, service confidentiality, and assertion integrity, encryption and a digital signature mechanism is deployed. We build web service management server based on XACML, in order to manage services and policies of web service providers.
