The most important technology in the mobile commerce based on mobile applications is to guarantee the certification and security of trading information exchange. Many technologies are proposed as a standard to support this security problem. M(Mobile)-commerce is a new area arising from the marriage of electronic commerce with emerging mobile and pervasive computing technology. The newness of this area and the rapidness with which it is emerging makes it difficult to analyze the technological problems that mcommerce introduces and, in particular, the security and privacy issues. This situation is not good, since history has shown that security is very difficult to retro-fit into deployed technology, and pervasive m-commerce promises to permeate and transform even more aspects of life than e-commerce and the Internet has. One of them is an XML (eXtensible Markup Language). This is used in various applications as the document standard for electronic commerce system. The XML security has become very important topic. In this paper, we propose the XML security model for mobile commerce services based electronic commerce system to guarantee the secure exchange of trading information. To accomplish the security of XML, the differences of XML signature, XML encryption and XML key management scheme respect to the conventional system should be provided. The new architecture is proposed based on unique characteristics of mobile commerce on XML. Especially the method to integrate the process management system need to the electronic commerce is proposed.
