Simulation Software Security for the Semantic Web

Richard Toliver

bullet More and more simulations use the World Wide Web during their execution. Web-based interactive games are one example. Security of these simulations applications is a growing concern as major commercial companies and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) makes greater use of web-based simulations. The DoD's network-centric architecture supports the use of web-based simulations for solider training and for war fighting. Software security using current web technology is challenging, but ongoing development of the semantic web offers even greater challenges. Is it possible for web-based simulation systems to migrate to the semantic web and maintain or improve software security? This paper addresses this question and presents the results of ongoing research in this area. The research presents specific approaches for improving security while using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and other semantic web technology.
