Goal of Workshop

This workshop aims at sharing experiences of developing and managing middlewares from both a technical and policy aspect. It also aims at bringing together the domains of applications developers and middleware and security experts to identify areas of overlap and best practice so that the development of solutions can be simple and ideally modular in nature to ensure applications can be develop quickly and easily whilst conforming to middleware and security standards.


Theme of the Workshop
Middleware is a layer of software that acts as glue between applications and the Internet. Although it is somehow difficult to define what middleware is (see RFC2768), it surely provides fundamental services in various situations such as authentication, authorization, accounting, directories, resource management, information discovery and retrieval, and security. Middleware solutions are starting to mature with a number of frameworks emerging that should ideally make use of common reusable components and tools to deliver specific middleware services for communities such as researchers in GRID communities and teaching and learning in Higher education for example. This workshop aims to share experiences of developing and managing middlewares from both a technical and policy aspect. It aims to bring together the domains of applications developers and middleware and security experts to identify areas of overlap and best practice so that the development of solutions can be simple and ideally modular in nature to ensure applications can be develop quickly and easily whilst conforming to middleware and security standards.

Moreover, in this Workshop, papers on system developments/experiences are also welcome. If you consider submitting this kind of paper, please specify "Implementation" or "Experiences" in the keyword field of a paper.


Scope of the Workshop (Call-for-Papers)
The scope of the workshop includes but not limited to the following topics:

- Authentication, authorization, accounting and access management
- Single sign on for Web services and non-web applications
- Federated identity management and identity federation.
- Wireless network roaming architectures
- Federations & trust fabrics (technologies and policies)
- DNS and directory services
- E-mail digital signature and encryption (S/MIME, PGP, etc.)
- PKI deployment issues
- GRID middleware
- Security policies
- Implementation/Experiences of middlewares.
