Title State of the art survey on trust, security and contract management in web services and Grid computing
Abstract This deliverable is an update to the state of the art report that was produced at the start of the Trustcom project. The Trustcom project is half way through its three year research period, and has produced its initial conceptual models, architecture, designs and component implementations. At this point the state of the art in the technologies which contribute to Trustcom are being reviewed to ensure that decisions made so far in the project based on what was known 18 months ago are still sound. Issues reviewed include the innovative breakthroughs in technologies that could be used in the project, the adoption of technologies as standards that could be built on by the project, and the release of commercial products on the market which could lead the way to Trustcom exploitation, act as competition to Trustcom or show that topics being researched have already been developed to a commercial state so that alternative routes to procuring the technology other than development should be considered. Topics covered include VO management, contracts and service level agreements (SLA), collaborative business processes and enabling technologies. The conclusion of the review is that the main course of Trustcom has not been achieved elsewhere, and it is still consistent with the trend of development. However, both opportunities and threats to the Trustcom approach are identified.
