Abstract:A Collaborative Network (CN) is an adaptive and scalable ecosystem in which heterogeneous, autonomous and asynchronous entities – originating from different security domains – are collaborating to achieve some common goals. This requires that security is asserted for both the atomic systems as well as the ecosystems which they are part of. To support the latter, this design science study presents a metamodel for CN security architectures, allowing vulnerabilities to be uncovered and attacks assessed. Using a fictional case on Collaborative Combat, it is illustrated how the generic security metamodel - including a modelling pattern and viewpoints - can be applied within the context of an architecture development methodology, security analysis methodology, modelling tool and modelling language. A small-scale evaluation with possible future end-users seems to indicate that the design artefacts have the potential for modelling relevant system security properties of CNs, but that further development is necessary.
