The WWW and related technologies have made multi domain collaborations a reality. Collaborations enable processes to effectively share resources; it introduces several security and privacy challenges. Managing security and efficient exchange of information is even more challenging. In this paper, the authors propose a distributed secure frame work between Byzantine processes (nodes) in order to predict and resolve the functionalities of communication errors in collaboration environments. They introduce the idea of secure paths, which enables the front-end clients (e.g. web browsers) that invoke application servers (e.g. web servers) to access the back-end databases when an end-user interacts.
