As cloud-based services gain popularity in both private and enterprise domains, cloud consumers are still lacking in tools to verify that these services work as expected. Such tools should consider properties such as functional correctness, service availability, reliability, performance and security guarantees. In this paper we survey existing work in these(More)
Enforcing complex policies that span organizational domains is an open challenge. Current work on SOA policy enforcement splits security in logical components that can be distributed across domains, but does not offer any concrete solution to integrate this security functionality so that it works across security services for organization-wide policies.

Streaming applications over Peer-To-Peer (P2P) systems have gained an enormous popularity. Success always implies increased concerns about security, protection, privacy and all the other ‘side’ properties that transform an experimental application into a service. Research on security for P2P streaming started to flourish, but no comprehensive security(More)
In this paper we present Trishul-UCON (T-UCON), a DRM system based on the UCON_ABC model. T-UCON is designed to be capable of enforcing not only application-specific policies, as any existing software-based DRM solution does, but also DRM policies across applications. This is achieved by binding the DRM policy only to the content it protects with no(More)
As Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web services are becoming widely deployed, the problematic of security is far from being solved. In an attempt to address this issue, the industry proposed several extensions to the SOAP protocol that currently reached different levels of standardization. However, no architectural guidelines have yet been(More)
In November 2006, a 28-year-old male presented with a 3-week history of pleuritic chest pain. Computed tomography (CT) scan demonstrated a 10.411.2-cm right-sided anterior mediastinal mass (Fig 1). Positron emission tomography/CT revealed [F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) maximum standard uptake value (SUVmax, 16.8) in the mediastinum. A CT-guided biopsy revealed(More)
Epstein-Barr virus-mediated posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a well-recognized complication of immunosuppression in transplant patients and has broad clinical manifestations and pathologic features ranging from reactive lymphoid proliferation to malignant lymphoma. The category of Hodgkin lymphoma and Hodgkin lymphomalike PTLD is an(More)
Bone marrow (BM) nvolvement is common in stage 4/M neuroblastoma patients and profoundly impacts clinical decision-making and predicts outcomes, but to our knowledge no standard exists for immunohistochemical evaluation of staging BMs. We examined the use of three immuno-stains-synaptophysin, tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), and PGP9.5-in detecting metastatic(More)
Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) involving the central nervous system (CNS) in children are uncommon and can prove diagnostically challenging. The clinical and imaging characteristics of CNS PTLD can overlap with those of infection, hemorrhage, and primary CNS tumors. Some cases of CNS PTLD remain clinically unsuspected and are diagnosed(More)
Survival following childhood neuroblastoma is improving with low rates of secondary myeloid neoplasms. We describe a 13-month-old male with intermediate risk neuroblastoma who developed an isolated scalp therapy-related myeloid sarcoma (t-MS). Developmental delays and two distinct malignancies prompted constitutional evaluation. Chromosomal microarray(More)
