The security and interoperability of an adopted and advanced architecture within heterogeneous components, based on the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Sensor Web Enablement Architecture (SWE) and RESTful web service, requires integrity and confidentiality in the dif ferent communication protocol. RESTful services are considered a versatile lightweight solution relied upon by a number of advanced web services. At the same time, RESTful services suffer from a lack of meta-data description concerning security requirements. We introduce the REST security protocol to provide secure data transfer service, together with its quality and its performance analysis when compared to equivalen t WS-security configuration. The work in this paper aims to introduce a security protocol of communication between the sensors based on SWE services and the adopted RESTful interface. In this way, we provide a REST security protocol which will implement a secure lightweight sensor message and analyze its performance comparing to equivalent web services.
