Abstract—The development and use of software based on cloud computing have been highlighted more and more nowadays. Software as a Service (SaaS) is considered as a trend for small, medium and large enterprises. However, SaaS brings some challenges concerning information security. In this context, we propose an approach based on Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), weaving models and security techniques for developing secure software as a service. An illustrative example helps to understand our proposed approach and demonstrates its feasibility and benefits.

Index Terms—Model driven engineering, model transformations, weaving model, cloud computing.
