The continuous evolution and unpredictability underlying service-based systems leads to difficulties in making exact QoS claims about the dependability of architectures interfacing with them. Hence, there is a growing need for new methods to evaluate the dependability of architectures interfacing with such environments. This paper presents a method for evaluating the security quality attribute of architectures in service-based systems. The proposed method combines some properties of the Architectural Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM) and security testing using implied scenario.
