Abstract (Swedish)
By increasing importance of information for enterprises and appearing new forms of threats such as cyber-attacks, information warfare, and terrorism, information security has become one of the most significant concerns of enterprises. On the other hand, Enterprise Architecture (EA) as a holistic approach tries to address main concerns of enterprises; therefore, the frameworks and methods of EA have considered security issues. However, EA frameworks follow different strategies to address security concerns, but most of the EA frameworks and methods have accepted the Security Architecture (SA) term as a holistic approach to security concern. Nevertheless, there are some frameworks and methods to develop SA independent of EA. The present study... (More)
By increasing importance of information for enterprises and appearing new forms of threats such as cyber-attacks, information warfare, and terrorism, information security has become one of the most significant concerns of enterprises. On the other hand, Enterprise Architecture (EA) as a holistic approach tries to address main concerns of enterprises; therefore, the frameworks and methods of EA have considered security issues. However, EA frameworks follow different strategies to address security concerns, but most of the EA frameworks and methods have accepted the Security Architecture (SA) term as a holistic approach to security concern. Nevertheless, there are some frameworks and methods to develop SA independent of EA. The present study seeks to clarify relationship between EA and SA by describing relevant examples from the literature review and addressing SA in different EA frameworks. The study aims to classify and evaluate different SA development strategies based on previous works and interviewing EA experts. According to the findings of this research, developing SA independent of EA, using EA knowledge in developing SA, using EA artifacts in to develop SA, and developing SA as a part of EA are the main strategies of SA development. Also, integrating SA and EA development leads to increasing effectiveness and efficiency of SA development. (Less)
