In this paper, the authors present a secure resource control solution for service oriented applications. Through this, resources on a shared device can be protected from malicious abuse and become controllable for special QoS provisioning. Services are grouped into virtual communities and service access can only be done within the scope of a virtual community. Using soft-state management, services and their underlying resources are monitored by a novel device management service which runs on each device and can activate or deactivate hosted services.
