Designing Secure e-Contracting Systems

Gauravaram, Praveen & Foo, Ernest (2007) Designing Secure e-Contracting Systems. In CollECTeR 2007 - 21st Conference on eCommerce / 10th Anniversary CollECTeR Australia conference, 9-11 December 2007, Melbourne.


Information security goals and services for e-contracting systems have not previously been closely examined in open literature. This paper identifies key security goals and the services to be considered when designing e-contracting systems. Several AEC collaborative platforms are reviewed. These systems are currently used for project management and could be used for e-contracting. The results of the review show that while integrity and confidentiality of contract documents is ensured during communication in contract formation, few of the systems consider these security requirements during archiving. A new e-contracting architecture is proposed to provide security for the full e-contract life cycle.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
