Aspects of Objects and Security
In this chapter we explore aspects of objects and security. In particular we explore secure object request brokers and the use of object modeling for secure applications. Note that some argue that database systems have to be integrated with middleware to produce middleware data management systems (see, for example, the panel discussion at the 2002 IEEE Data Engineering Conference). Furthermore, object models such as OMT and UML (see [RUMB91] and [FOWL97]) are being examined to design secure database applications. Therefore distributed object systems as well as object modeling have close connections to data management.
