Building Secure High-Performance Web Services with OKWS
Maxwell Krohn, MIT
OKWS is a toolkit for building fast and secure Web services.
It provides Web developers with a small set of
tools that has proved powerful enough to build complex
systems with limited effort. Despite its emphasis on security,
OKWS shows performance improvements compared
to popular systems: when servicing fully dynamic,
non-disk-bound database workloads, OKWS's throughput
and responsiveness exceed that of Apache 2 ,
Flash  and Haboob . Experience with OKWS in a
commercial deployment suggests it can reduce hardware
and system management costs, while providing security
guarantees absent in current systems.
