    The paper mentions that business processes in today's enterprises are dynamic, flexible, and sometimes ad hoc. The enterprise often uses not only process management systems but also various tools, resources, and services to support process execution. Process spaces can provide a new abstraction for process management in such scenarios. Process-space management systems can enable definition, analys... View full abstract»

    Capturing trustworthiness, reputation, and reliability of Semantic Web data manipulated by SPARQL requires researchers to represent adequate provenance information, usually modeled as source data annotations and propagated to query results along with a query evaluation. Alternatively, abstract provenance models can capture the relationship between query results and source data by taking into accou... View full abstract»

    In this article, the authors provide an example workflow-and a simple classification of user questions on the workflow's data products-to combine and interchange contextual metadata through a semantic data model and infrastructure. They also analyze their approach's potential to support enhanced semantic provenance applications. View full abstract»

    Data processing is often restricted by contractual and legal requirements for protecting privacy and intellectual-property rights. Internet policies help control how and by whom data is processed. Policy conditions could depend on previous data processing and thus on the processing histories' temporal structure. However, existing policy languages don't allow for expressing the temporal aspects of ... View full abstract»

    It seems likely that the Web as we know it will undergo several paradigm shifts in the coming years: its content will expand from 2D documents to also accommodate 3D virtual worlds; with new technologies like RFID and smartphones, be able to link to a place or thing (in the real or virtual world) and associate more metadata annotations with things in the real and virtual worlds to create increasin...

    Community-driven question-answering (CQA) services on the Internet let users share content in the form of questions and answers. Usually, questions attract multiple answers of varying quality from other users. A new approach aims to identify high-quality answers from candidate answers to questions that are semantically similar to the new question. Toward that end, the authors developed and tested ...

    Much controversy exists over the wisdom and usefulness of the Author Domain Signing Practices (ADSP) standard. ADSP publishes the signing practices that organizations adopt when using DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) to relay mail for associated authors. This article considers the pros and cons of ADSP, with each side written by a participant in the development of the DKIM and ADSP standards. View full abstract»

    Haskell is an advanced functional programming language. The product of more than 20 years of research, it enables rapid development of robust, concise, and fast software. Haskell supports integration with other languages and has loads of built-in concurrency, parallelism primitives, and rich libraries. With its state-of-the-art testing tools and an active community, Haskell makes it easier to prod... View full abstract»

  • Leaky or Guessable Session Identifiers

    Many Internet and Web applications use session identifiers. Too often, developers of those applications make the bad assumption that all is well because session identifiers are only known to authorized users. However, in many cases, session identifiers can leak out or be guessed, sometimes trivially. If presenting an identifier is the only authorization an application requires, it can represent an...

    The Internet is widely (and rightly) recognized as a key enabler of new applications and services. But it's always surprising how much a substantial fraction of the computer science community ignores some of the fundamental changes in the nature of the Internet itself. The Internet's success can largely be credited to the simple yet powerful service abstraction offered by IP networks. The article ... View full abstract»
