  • EDOC Workshops – Re-using Enterprise Architecture Repositories for Agile Threat Modeling
    2019 IEEE 23rd International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Workshop (EDOCW), 2019
    Co-Authors: Wenjun Xiong, Per Carlsson, Robert Lagerström

    Abstract:

    Digitization has increased exposure and opened up for more cyber threats and attacks. To proactively handle this issue, enterprise modeling needs to include threat management during the design phase that considers antagonists, attack vectors, and damage domains. Agile methods are commonly adopted to efficiently develop and manage software and systems. This paper proposes to use an enterprise Architecture Repository to analyze not only shipped components but the overall Architecture, to improve the traditional designs represented by legacy systems in the situated IT-landscape. It shows how the hidden structure method (with Design Structure Matrices) can be used to evaluate the enterprise Architecture, and how it can contribute to agile development. Our case study uses an architectural descriptive language called ArchiMate for Architecture modeling and shows how to predict the ripple effect in a damaging domain if an attacker’s malicious components are operating within the network.

  • EDOCW – Looking for a Software Wizard for Architectural Definitions of Information Systems
    2011 IEEE 15th International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference Workshops, 2011
    Co-Authors: Bruno Traverson

    Abstract:

    Although software Architecture plays an important role in maintaining extra-functional properties of an Information System (IS), its choice is essentially based on skill and past experiences of its designers. This paper takes position in favor of an appraisal of a software wizard for Architecture definition of IS. Analysis and design tools exist in a sparse way and tackle only partially the problems faced by IS architects. Lack of integration of these kinds of tools could be fulfilled by a set of software wizards federated around an Architecture Repository that could be also used for evolution management or for education of architects.

  • rarep a reference Architecture Repository
    International Conference on Software Engineering, 2016
    Co-Authors: Tales Prates Correia, Milena Guessi, Lucas Bueno Ruas De Oliveira, Elisa Yumi Nakagawa

    Abstract:

    Reference Architectures are a special type of software Architectures that have been proposed for supporting standardization, development, and evolution of software systems of a given domain. As these Architectures could contribute for knowledge reuse and increased productivity, several companies have been creating specific reference Architectures for their field of expertise. Nonetheless, there is no mechanism that enable recovering, publishing, and sharing existing reference Architectures for the public. The main contribution of this paper is to present RARep (Reference Architecture Repository), a web-based reference Architecture Repository supporting the dissemination of materials related to reference Architectures. As a result, this tool can facilitate the access to information on reference Architectures and, hence, promote the sharing of architectural knowledge contained in such Architectures.
