Abstract : Nowadays, business processes allow more automation of tasks and complex interconnections within the same system and across different systems, which is particularly facilitated by the emergence of Web services. In this context, the tasks of specifying and checking compliance at runtime become particularly challenging.In this thesis, our goal is twofold: monitoring and security in the context of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Thus, we proposed a view-based monitoring approach and a framework that target monitoring of business process compliance at runtime. Our monitoring framework aims to offer an easy way to specify properties to be monitored and to facilitate its integration with SOA based environments. Thus, we have developed a new monitoring language called BPath, which is an XPath-based language that offers among others, the ability to express and to check temporal and hybrid logic properties at runtime, making the execution of business processes visible by expressing and evaluating quantitative indicators, in order to detect any compliance violation at runtime. A specific compliance monitoring concern in SOA based environment is security, which is also an important aspect for companies willing to give access to some of their resources over the Web. Thus, we proposed a domain specific language (DSL) based architecture for ensuring security in SOA environments. We particularly focused on access control by proposing a graphical language to facilitate the specification and generation of access control policies.Our approaches are implemented and integrated within a complete end to end compliance framework developed within the COMPAS project.
