Authorization and Authority Systems BoF
Time 04/19/04 01:00PM-02:30PM
Work in two areas of middleware has progressed to the point where "early adopters" are needed to evaluate first-round deliverables and shape further developments. Representative from Grouper and the Authority System project will summarize their vision and the current state of work on tools that offer the promise of robust distributed administration of groups in general and privilege management in particular. Participants will be invited to self-identify as possible early adopters. That will lead to a discussion of the potentials and perils of volunteering for a stint at the bleeding edge.
