Abstract:


Authentication merely proves the identity of the parties during a SOA transaction. In order to trust the bona fide conduct of an operation there is also a need for trusting the software. The parties should provide a proof of genuineness which can be validated in the other end. In this paper, two different approaches to hardware assisted software integrity control is presented. They both combine with an identity management service to provide attested genuineness for improved trust in the transaction. One approach employs the well known Trusted Platform Module hardware unit, the other is based on custom design hardware.
