Authorisation as used by many national federations (SAML)
Service/application integration as used by many major applications (operating system security APIs).
What we've done so far
In April 2013 we began a pilot project to implement Moonshot technology with participating pilot sites. This has helped us to gather and understand requirements, at both a technical and usability level. This engagement has shaped and driven the continued development of the code to a stable level, now deployed and utilised by an increasing number of pilot sites.
In March 2015 we established and made available a trust router, which pilot sites have started connecting to. The trust router is a scalable mechanism which enables organisations who are running Moonshot to communicate with one another. Trust routers are an important part of our infrastructure that can help different groups of users (communities of interest) to gain access to resources at a level of security that they are happy with.
What we're continuing to do
Work has not stopped. Since the launch of Assent, we're continuing to:
Gather requirements and feedback, improving the core software in response with new features
Engage with the research and educational communities to find use cases and promote the use of Moonshot as a solution
Add to the supported OS platforms where requested by the communities
