Plenary: Middleware...by any other name...
Time 10/03/01 08:45AM-10:00AM
We are entering a new phase of networking, with inter-realm middleware services emerging to enable new forms of collaboration and computation. Key pieces and processes are falling into place to provide a consistent and comprehensive global middleware infrastructure. Eduperson, Shibboleth, PKI, the Directory of Directories complement other key software developments in higher education. New efforts intend to fill the last remaining gaps in the architecture. In this session, Internet2 campus members who are leading these projects will discuss and provide a vision for how the pieces fit together.
