Security Concerns of Object Oriented Software Architectures
Testing and measuring the security of software system architectures is a difficult task. An attempt is made in this paper to analyze the issues of architecture security of object-oriented software's using common security concepts to evaluate the security of a system under design. Object oriented systems are based on various architectures like COM, DCOM, CORBA, MVC and Broker. In object oriented technology the basic system component is an object. Individual system component is posing it own risk in the system. Security policies and the associated risk in these software architectures can be calculated for the individual component. Overall risk can be calculated based on the context and risk factors in the architecture.
