Design and Usage of an External Authorization System

Time 04/29/09 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

Within the EGEE-III project, SWITCH, CNAF, HIP and NIKHEF are developing an authorization system, that can be generally applied across multiple applications. This service allows for policies to be maintained in a centralized, distributed, or hybrid model. It also attempts to address various issues dealing with the complexity of authoring policies for common use cases. This presentation will focus on three areas:
* the architecture of the service and issues that arise when attempting to create a fault tolerant authorization system
* lessons learned from attempting to integrate an external authorization service into applications
* the future directions for such a service, including how it interacts with the Swiss identify federation
