Abstract: Multimedia service providers on the web need their services to be well protected and easily accessible worldwide. This has initiated several lines of research to provide semantically rich policy-aware web services. However, the existence of various technologies to define and protect services has made the communication of services questionable. Currently, it is ambiguous how a broker agent looking for a special object would communicate to an online service provider, with different policy and service definition languages, to obtain the appropriate object. Here, we propose a solution to such problems by introducing an interchange framework to transform business rules and policies between different enterprises using REWERSE Rule Markup Language.

 

Keywords: semantic web rule languages; SWL; SWRL; policy languages; semantic web services; policy-driven communication; rule interchange format; RIF; multimedia.
