The way enterprises conduct business today is changing greatly. The enterprise has become more pervasive with a mobile workforce, outsourced data centers, different engagements with customers and distributed sites [19.1, 2].

This increases the need for securing end-to-end transactions between business partners and the customer [19.3].
