A Prototype Security Mechanism for Xml Documents and Soap Messages
Cyber crime is a recurrent phenomenon on the internet despite various preventive measures towards these activities. As web servers develop means to protect their data and/or services, hackers are improving everyday on their skills to break these measures. It is in light of this that we developed a model that demonstrates how to best safeguard log information so that when such cyber crime takes place, there can be a way to track such criminals even when they succeed. It also shows how we can better protect our log information from unauthorized users of the system so that as accesses are made, protection and avoidance mechanisms can be enforced.
