As part of ISA Action 1.17, A Reusable INSPIRE Reference Platform (ARE3NA) a project was launched by the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC) on Authentication, Authorization & Accounting for Data and Services in EU Public Administrations, with a focus on the access control needs of the INSPIRE Directive.
This document, D2.1 – Analysis of Evidence Base: Relationships and Gaps between Technologies, Standards and Best Practices, explores the state-of-the-art in terms of standards and technologies that can be used in an Access Management Federation, as a proposal for how AAA can be deployed in INSPIRE that was discussed at a workshop organised in this study. This output is relevant to the implementation of the Directive, as being discussed by the INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Group in terms of developing Guidelines and Best Practices for Access Control.
The evidence from this work has been important for selecting standards and tools that were used in the AAA testbed's developments.
The JRC wish to thank the authors and reviewers for their work in supporting ARE3NA.
