Abstract:

The growing popularity of network-based services and peer-to-peer networks has resulted in situations where components of a distributed application often need to execute in environments that are only partly trusted by the applications owner. Such deployment into partial or unstable trust environments exacerbates the classical problems of distributing decomposable services authentication and access control, trust management, secure communication. code distribution and installation. and process rights management. Unfortunately. the application developers burden of coping with these latter issues often dominates the benefits of service distribution.
