Role-based access control and single sign-on for Web services
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Nowadays, the need for sharing information between different systems in a secure manner is common, not only in the corporate world but also in the military world. This information often resides at different locations, creating a distributed system. In order to share information in a secure manner in a distributed system, credentials are often used to attain authorization.
This thesis examines how such a distributed system for sharing information can be realized, using the technology readily available today. Accounting to the results of this examination a basic system is implemented, after which the overall security of the system is evaluated. The thesis then presents possible extensions and improvements that can be done in future implementations.
The result shows that dynamic roles do not easily integrate with a single sign-on system. Combining the two technologies leads to several synchronization issues, where some are non-trivial to solve.
