Applications designed are comprehensive only when QoS (Quality of Service) is proper. QoS characteristics includes a set of general characteristics such as Dependability, Security, Adaptability, Maintainability, Portability, Throughput, Capacity, Turn-around Time, Parallelism Constraints, Availability, Ordering Constraints, Result, Achievability, Priority and Presentation. In a Distributed Environment, Security risks are a major concern, because the networked workstations and applications are exposed to a variety of threats. The threats can be eavesdropping, masqaurading, tampering and replaying. To avoid these threats solutions like handshake mechanism, authentication, authorization and cryptography can be used. This paper is to design and develop security framework encapsulating the above solutions.
