We discuss the design of an integrated security architecture for authorization and authentication in a distributed object environment. Our architecture will have four main components : an , an and an . The core component of our model is the session manager, which issues XML-based to authenticated users.

We will also describe how the architecture supports dynamic revocation of session certificates and delegation.
