Abstract: In this paper, we propose the new concept "Software Accountability". Our daily life heavily depends on various kinds of e-society systems. Therefore the system should be designed, implemented, operated and maintained to assure us that e-society systems are dependable and trustworthy. Software accountability is one of such requirements for Trustworthy e-Society. We try to define the concept, software accountability, based on the research results both in Software Engineering field and in Legal Theory. In the paper, we show the definition of software accountability, software accountability functions, software accountability tree, software accountability module in turn and then a realization mechanism of software accountability functions, presenting the architecture to combine the software accountability module with the existing information system. We also show the result of a case study by developing the course management system with software accountability functions that shows the feasibility of our approach.
