Design and management of authorization services in service oriented architectures poses several challenges. In this paper, we propose authorization architecture for business process layer in service oriented architecture. We describe the components and functionalities of the architecture such as authorization policy evaluators, certificate and credential authorities and dynamic attribute services and discuss the security management of these functions at specification time and at run time. Then the paper describes authorization evaluation algorithms and discusses the design choices for evaluation models. Finally, the paper describes the benefits of the proposed architecture, which has been implemented.
