A2Z: Akenti access to zetoc

This webpage has been archived. Its content will not be updated.

Manchester Computing (MC) and the e-Science Centre for the North West (ESNW), both at the University of Manchester, are proposing to implement and conduct a technical evaluation of the authorisation system, Akenti. (The JISC call specifically requested proposals for the evaluation of this scheme.) The authorisation evaluation will be conducted in the context of the existing MIMAS current awareness service 'zetoc'. 

The system will be made accessible both as a web server (through digital certificates embedded in the user’s web browser along side traditional Athens authentication) and as a web service (using GSI authentication). The existing EPSRC-funded e-Science pilot project my Grid will provide the environment for evaluating the interoperability with praxis gaining currency in the UK e-Science programme.
