Developing a Secure Web Service Architecture for SVG Image Delivery

Sabah Mohammed, Jinan Fiaidhi, Hamada Ghenniwa and Marshall Hahn


Web Services are substantially growing and become vital for businesses and organizations. A major concern, especially for mission-critical applications is Security. This study focuses on developing Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) as Web services. In particular, we develop a service-oriented architecture that securely manages SVG Web services using the intermediary design pattern. In the proposed architecture we introduced two kinds of specialized security intermediaries to enforce SVG signature/authentication and encryption/decryption. A prototype of the proposed architecture has been implemented based on Apache Axis.
