FINSA privacy and security software components

The PISA software components may be classified in two categories:
- A generic architectural framework;

- A set of reusable software agents that must be specialized when implementing a specific application.

The architecture is based on several technologies and protocols (JADE platform, WEB services, SOAP, RMI, XML to mention a few), and provides specification for the organisation and functional roles of the internal components (the PISA agent platform), and for the interaction with external components (Certification Authorities, Data mining tools, business objects). The user application layer (presentation logic) needs to be written, but PISA demonstrators provide useful examples on how this can be done.

The set of reusable SW agents includes:
- Registration authority agent;
- Personal agents;
- Task agents;
- Service agents;
- Advisor agents;
- Monitor agent;
- Log agents.

The framework is scalable in the sense that different degrees of privacy may be obtained by using different combinations of agents.

Through the PISA Demonstrators, several tests on performance have been carried on to prove the technical feasibility of the proposed architecture.
