Paper Abstract

Virtual enterprise (VE) gateways are one of the approaches being studied by the NIIIP consortium for building the virtual enterprise, defined as a temporary alliance of companies to address fast-changing business opportunities. VE gateways are software entities that link dissimilar management and programming domains over untrusted networks such as the Internet in order to provide a secure communications infrastructure, for member enterprise control of resources in a peer-to-peer manner; and for integrated VE-wide administration. This paper discusses the concepts, architectures, and prototype implementations of VE gateways under development for NIIIP.
