Summary: The book shows a way of providing more refined methods of information flow control than those offered by role-based access control (RBAC). For granting access to information or resources, former or further information flow in a business process requesting this access is taken into account. The methods proposed are comparatively easy to apply and have been proven to be largely machine-executable by a prototypical realisation. As an addition, the methods are extended to be also applicable to BPEL-defined workflows in Grid and Cloud computing.Contents Cross-Organisational Deployment of Business Processes - Approaches to Specification and Enforcement of Security Policies - Analysis of Security-Relevant Semantics of BPEL - Security Policy Compliance Assessment for BPEL-Defined Processes - Extension of Methods for Security Policy Enforcement to Grid Processes and Cloud Workflows Target Groups IT Security Specialists; Chief Information Officers (CIOs); Chief Security Officers (CSOs); Security Policy and Quality Assurance Officers and Managers; Business Process and Web/Grid/Cloud Service Designers, Developers, Operational Managers; Interested Learners/Students in the Field of Security Management The Author Klaus-Peter Fischer-Hellmann has received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Plymouth (UK) and holds an MSc in Mathematics from the University of Heidelberg.
