WS-Attestation: Efficient and Fine-Grained Remote Attestation on Web Services

This paper proposes WS-Attestation, attestation
architecture on Web Services framework. We aim at
providing software oriented, dynamic and fine-grained
attestation mechanism that leverages TCG technologies
to increase trust and confidence in integrity reporting. In
addition, the architecture allows efficient binding of
attestation with application context, privacy protection,
as well as infrastructural support for attestation
