Abstract

This short presentation will provide the main findings from the first phase of a study on Authentication, Authorisation and Accounting (AAA) for INSPIRE data and services. The findings will be used as input into the development of testbed to examine how AAA approaches behave in real-world situations. There are opportunities to combine this presentation with related work at European and Member State levels and we would propose this paper is present in a dedicated session with the EEA and others working on data and service sharing. Funded by the ISA Programme, this study is a major contribution from A Reusable INSPIRE Reference Platform (ARE3NA), which has been looking into a range of topics supporting INSPIRE implementation while considering broader cross-border/cross-sector e-government interoperability issues. The work focusses on three aspects of interest to the conference audience. Firstly, the overall topic of access control to INSPIRE data and services has been recognised a challenge for several years. This work aims to contribute to the more technical aspects of this work from the perspective of interoperability. Funded by the ISA Programme, this study is a major contribution from A Reusable INSPIRE Reference Platform (ARE3NA), which has been looking into a range of topics supporting INSPIRE implementation while considering broader cross-border/cross-sector e-government interoperability issues. A broad review of technologies and standards, and good practice examples from INSPIRE and other sectors, including several other ISA Actions, are helping avoid INSPIRE implementation in a technical island. The presentation allows these findings to be shared with the INSPIRE community. Secondly, it will allow further discussion on the main issues emerging from a workshop on this topic that can also act as a reference for any further work. Thirdly, the conference provides good timing for the presentation of these findings and to present work on the testbed in participating organisations from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. This should include some initial challenges identified in implementing an approach, including organisational aspects and lessons learned. It is hoped that findings from this work will not only be of benefit to the participating organisations but also an approach that could be adopted by others within INSPIRE and other SDIs, as well as reusable software for other sectors.
