2 2 Copyright 2005 DataPower XML Benefits and Costs XML Has Many Architectural & Business Benefits Dramatically lowering cost & time for EAI / b2b Dramatically lowering cost & time for EAI / b2b Flexible websites and one-source publishing Flexible websites and one-source publishing Code reuse, easy debugging Code reuse, easy debugging XML is foundation for web services XML is foundation for web services Broadest industry support since HTTP Broadest industry support since HTTP …But Also Some Real World Drawbacks Scalability: XML is bandwidth, CPU and memory intensive Scalability: XML is bandwidth, CPU and memory intensive Performance: some XML apps literally grind to a halt Performance: some XML apps literally grind to a halt Insecure: connecting systems never before connected Insecure: connecting systems never before connected Insecure: clear text over HTTP with no inherent security Insecure: clear text over HTTP with no inherent security Standards are still in flux Standards are still in flux Financial, technical and organizational challenge Financial, technical and organizational challenge

6 6 Copyright 2005 DataPower Measuring XML Performance Broad range of XML operations – parse, validate, transform, route, encrypt Broad range of XML operations – parse, validate, transform, route, encrypt Applications operate on messages, not packets Applications operate on messages, not packets Message size varies from 10 bytes to 1+ gigabyte Message size varies from 10 bytes to 1+ gigabyte XML content complexity varies XML content complexity varies Processing can change message size & content Processing can change message size & content PPS or TPS not very useful PPS or TPS not very useful DataPower XSLTMark (2000) – defined throughput as (bytes_in + bytes_out)/ 2 DataPower XSLTMark (2000) – defined throughput as (bytes_in + bytes_out)/ 2 Good: gives useful rule-of-thumb Good: gives useful rule-of-thumb Bad: does not account for type of XML processing Bad: does not account for type of XML processing

7 7 Copyright 2005 DataPower Anatomy of XML Security Performance Performance is key to security Performance is key to security Each security function requires XML processing Each security function requires XML processing Must implement all services without any compromise Must implement all services without any compromise Need ability to scale as content and user base grows Need ability to scale as content and user base grows Encrypted & Signed SOAP/XML Transaction Approved, decrypted and validated SOAP/XML Transaction Processing Steps Schema Validation Parsing XPath Filtering XML Decryption XML Encryption Signature Verification Schema Validation XML Transformation XML Signing Crypto Ops -- XML Ops
