Abstract: The future network is expected to hosts much more than today's applications in an efficient manner but many flaws were found due to rigidity of the architecture. The researchers successfully developed many new flexible internet architectures to solve the infrastructural problems of the current internet. Service-oriented network architecture (SONATE) is one, which helps in supporting not only short-term demands but allows long-term demands that evolve. It offers various flexible services which bestow many issues of security. It is also envisioned that the security aspect needs to be embedded in the architecture because the major bottleneck in today's networking architecture is imparting the security provisions from outside the architecture. The authors discuss the need and importance for the development of access controls for the authenticated principals using a technique which is based on the role-based access and mandatory access for the loosely coupled nature of the services.
Keywords: service-oriented network architecture; SONATE; network security; authorisation; flexible networks; access control; future internet; service-oriented architecture; SOA; flexible services; authentication; role-based access; mandatory access.
