PCAS Deliverable D6.2 IDM, Authentication, Access and Provisioning Service Design


  • Utgiver: Norsk Regnesentral

This document describes the identity management functions of the STG and the relevant system interfaces, including provisioning interfaces for Service Providers. A critical objective of PCAS is to vouch for the identities of users, SPDs, and ServiceProviders, an objective that requires identity management procedures and functions. Additionally, the STG is involved in managing several other types of objects, including cryptographic keys and certificates, which support the secure communication infrastructure. Further, the mechanisms for provisioning PCAS to Service Providers are also detailed. Finally, an example of a PCAS service is described.
