This undergraduate research project aims to evaluate the impact caused by major security vulnerabilities in the context of Web services, which are characterized in the project proposal. The idea is to characterize the overhead that the attacks generate in an SOA architecture composed of providers, clients, services registries and enterprise service bus, as well as identifying solutions related to such attacks. In addition to the security issue must also be conducted a performance evaluation of the WSARCH architecture by the attacks in order to quantify the degradation in terms of CPU utilization, memory, accepted/rejected requests, cost of encryption algorithms and digital signatures, etc. (AU)
