Abstract [en]

If an existing service is to be made available to a broader audience, via for instance the Internet. The implementation of the service may thereby get many new requirements, such as support for a different access method or stricter authorisation and security policies.

This thesis discusses the implementation of an ISO 8583 to XML proxy. ISO 8583 is a widely used financial protocol, and was in this project used to communicate with the backing financial server in order to implement a complete web banking system. Hence the proxy encapsulates the already well-proved financial system into a module, that has taken appropriate security concerns and has a messaging schema that is compatible with the rest of the system.

The ISO 8583 and XML protocols are inherently incompatible, and hence the proxy can not be as simple as a translational proxy; it needs to keep state. How to handle this, and how to do it for many clients concurrently is the main focus of this paper. It does however also include a look at the broader picture of the full system, and how some of the implementation specific quirks was handled.
