Comparison of the AKENTI and PERMIS authorization infrastructures
This webpage has been archived. Its content will not be updated.
This project will evaluate and compare and contrast the AKENTI and PERMIS authorisation infrastructures. This will be done at a number of levels.
- Firstly by analysing the documentation of both projects and producing a detailed document describing the differences in the functionality and features of the two infrastructures.
- Secondly by building a test application that will integrate both the AKENTI and PERMIS authorisation infrastructures. From this we will be able to describe the usability aspects of each infrastructure e.g. ease of integration, ease of management (policy creation, allocation of authorisation certificates to end users etc.)
- Finally by running performance measurements on both infrastructures and measuring their throughput, speed of access control decision making, number of simultaneous decisions etc. so as to be able see how well each perform under different workloads.
