Many domains are increasingly dominated by interdependent services and data exchange between different actors, leading to the emergence of data ecosystems. As a result, service engineers are increasingly tasked with integrating existing service components and data sources into service systems and orchestrating them. In complex areas such as smart living, these tasks are even more difficult by the particular relevance of individual data protection requirements and the low fault tolerance of security-related systems. To address these issues, a central service registry for the domain smart living has been prototypically developed and evaluated, focusing especially on the transparency of data flows and the technical exchangeability of service components. In this way, added value is achieved for data providers and for data users by providing information on the forwarding of their own data as well as on the origin of the data and possible data quality.
