Increasing complexity and inter-dependency of information systems (IS), and the lack of transparency regarding system components and policies, have rendered traditional security mechanisms (applied at different OSI levels) inadequate to provide convincing confidentiality-integrity-availability (CIA) assurances regarding any IS. We present an architecture for a generic, trustworthy assurance-as-a-service IS, which can actively monitor the integrity of any IS, and provide convincing system-specific CIA assurances to users of the IS. More importantly no component of the monitored IS itself is trusted in order to provide assurances regarding the monitored IS.
