Certification is a well-established approach for the provision of assertions on security and privacy properties of entities (products, systems, services). People using (or other entities interacting with) certified entities can rely on the asserted properties, provided that the process of certification is known to produce sufficient evidence for the validity of the property for the certified entity. Today, business processes are increasingly implemented via run-time selection and composition of remote components provided by service suppliers. On the future Internet of Services, service purchasers will like (i) to have certified evidence that the remote services possess some desired non-functional properties, including service security, reliability, and quality, (ii) to be able to infer process-level properties across certified services’ composition. In this chapter, we provide a first analysis of the challenges to be faced toward security certification in the Internet of services, outlining possible solutions and future research directions.
