English abstract:
The Internet of Services will facilitate cross-organizational
collaboration by allowing companies to utilize services
from external providers. Even though standard security mechanisms
such as message encryption may be in place, attackers
could create detailed profiles of service consumers, providers,
and marketplaces by monitoring communication endpoints. This
threatens the security objective of relationship anonymity and
potentially permits sensitive information about the underlying
business processes or relationships between service consumers
and providers to be revealed. While state-of-the-art countermeasures
in the form of anonymity systems allow this problem to be
addressed, they may have undesired side effects on the Quality of
Service. This work provides a detailed empirical analysis of these
side effects, based on an extensive measurement of the response
time, availability, and throughput of representative, globally
distributed services. Our experimental results are available to
the interested public within the comprehensive dataset WS-Anon.
