It has never been easier to access scholarly information from anywhere in the world in real time. However, this information is often held in disparate systems and is protected by a variety of access control mechanisms, such as usernames and passwords. Many users have to struggle with increasingly complicated access control systems in order to access information they require. This is especially the case in Higher and Further Education.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/eurocamp-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue43 event report ann borda masha garibyan eduserv jisc london school of economics microsoft oasis stanford university university of kent perseus access control authentication data digital identity e-research further education higher education identifier infrastructure interoperability jstor ldap metadata open source passwords portal preservation privacy repositories research saml schema shibboleth software xacml Fri, 29 Apr 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1150 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Shibboleth Installation Workshop http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue42/shibboleth-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue42/shibboleth-rpt#author1">James Sankar</a> and <a href="/issue42/shibboleth-rpt#author2">Masha Garibyan</a> report on the first ever Shibboleth Installation Workshop in the UK.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Staff and students in Higher and Further Education institutions currently experience an overload of information. In many cases, this information is held on different systems, available via widely differing levels of access control, ranging from open to strictly controlled access. Access controls are also subject to data protection legislation and/or tough licensing conditions. One way of overcoming the problem of accessing information from various systems is to build Web portals. These can provide a superficial environment for the presentation of information from various sources.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue42/shibboleth-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue42 event report james sankar masha garibyan jisc london school of economics ukerna perseus access control authentication data ejournal further education identifier infrastructure jstor open source portal privacy research shibboleth software web portal Sun, 30 Jan 2005 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1123 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
