In this book a reference architecture is introduced enhancing the security of the services offered in the information and communication technology (ICT) market. Customers will be able to compare offerings and to assess risks associated with using third-party ICT services including cloud computing and mobile services. Service providers are provided with a comprehensive blueprint for security implementation and maintenance covering service portfolio management, bid phases and realization projects as well as the service delivery management. The architecture is thoroughly modular and hierarchical. It contains a security taxonomy that organizes all aspects of modern industrialized ICT production.
