    Abstract

    Commonly, the deployment environment of software based services cannot be predicted in advance, which leads to need to have specific solutions to monitor their security and reliability during runtime. These services are also commonly accessed remotely, leading to further complexity in their monitoring and analysis. The work presented in this paper proposes a solution for enhanced security monitoring of such services, providing for increased confidence in the service security and reliability. The proposed solution uses near-real time information collected about the service and its environment during its use. The approach is evaluated using a case study of monitoring a mobile payment service showing increased awareness and confidence of service security.
