Utilizing B2B Service Negotiation for Security and Qualities of Service

This article outlines an approach that utilizes B2B Service negotiation for security and qualities of service. The system negotiates a session over the Internet Protocol and through that negotiation, is able to understand the path which the data will travel through the network and adjust the qualities of service and security based on that path and based on Service Level Agreements (SLA).

The system will look up the service in a service registry. The component of the system utilizing the registry to look up the service will use a well known protocol, such as SIP, to negotiate the session between itself and the service. The session itself will be of another protocol such as SOAP over HTTP. This negotiation allows the service to further understand the path of the data flowing on the network. The service will have information about the component, such as the name of the component or business interacting with the component. The service will be able to look-up the SLA based on the information about the component mentioned previously. Based on the negotiation path, the service will adjust the initial qualities of service and security the component receives. For example, If the path went purely through its own network, a lower encryption level may be utilized than if the data flowe...
