Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)

Abstract

The goal of the talk would be to impart some knowledge of the current state of open authorisation standards and how the python web application tools that are available for them may be applied in practise. The prerequisites are some background in web development and perhaps authorisation systems - experience of Django is not necessary but may be useful.

The introduction will give background regarding the application, for context, e.g. 3 million survey responses in a Perl web application being rewritten in Django with Cassandra and PostgreSQL data storage. The need to add external access control via Shibboleth (SAML2) and OpenID.

This will be followed by a summary of the features and differences between the three main open standards for third party access control, SAML2, OAuth and OpenId.
