Brief project description: A workshop at the OAI5 conference in April 2007 identified a need for improved attribute managed federated access to repositories, and produced a set of requirements. The Federated Access to Repositories (FAR);project would take up this list, and use it to: Create recommendations for attributes to describe authorisation to repositories; where appropriate,;these recommendations will be passed to relevant standards groups Develop extensions to the repository software (EPrints and DSpace) so that it can be used with; Shibboleth and meet these requirements (building on earlier work where this exists) ;Test existing work integrating Shibboleth and Fedora and recommend to developers what will be;needed to meet these requirements ;Install demonstration repositories to show how this can work in practice Feed the modifications and full documentation into the appropriate repository software development process to ensure maintenance through future releases of Eprints and Shibboleth Develop procedures to consider ways of extending federated access management to new functionality introduced into the repository software products following the conclusion of the project A demonstrator of the software will be produced as well as a final version.
