In today's age of Web applications connected via Web services, accountability has become both crucial and harder to achieve. The management of authentication, authorization, and accountability in these applications is therefore a very important and difficult problem to solve. In this installment of Building Security In, the authors describe how audit logging can be built into the Web services infrastructure.
