Abstract

Accountability provides the necessary assurance to different stakeholders (customers, auditors, regulators) about the correct execution of the obligations concerning compliance requirements. Modeling accountability in a business process is an important problem, as SOA is the generally accepted standard for IT systems. This requires the orchestration of several non-functional concerns across services (such as authentication, authorization, logging, among others) to attest the correct operation of control activities. In this paper, we show how a model-driven framework for non-functional concerns can integrate accountability in business processes. Using the NFComp modeling framework, we define and compose a set of non-functional concerns that securely assert that subjects have fulfilled their responsibilities, towards realizing accountability. The approach allows the reuse of the composed accountability concerns in different processes.
