A new Framework for Secure Distributed Function Calls

Many frameworks and systems for remote procedure calls exist. However, many of these are extremely
complex and therefore hard to port from one programming language to another (e.g. CORBA, Google
Protocol Buffers). In addition, many of them (e.g. XML-RPC) do not support symmetric settings as
required by distributed systems. Other frameworks are dedicated to distributed systems but are inherently
insecure.

The goal of this thesis is to design, implement, and evaluate a new light weight framework for secure
distributed remote procedure calls. In particular, the new framework shall be based on a newly designed security architecture, support symmetric settings and shall be language independent in the sense that it is light-weight enough to allow for easy portation to other languages.
