Abstract

This paper presents a case study of authentication, access control, and payment scenarios in the world of digital libraries. The role of an X.500 directory-based informational service in these scenarios is discussed. Password- and certificate-based authentication mechanisms are compared. Problems of mediating access control by broker services are outlined. A framework for managing users' access profiles is presented. The need for convergence towards certificate-based authentication is described as a key requirement of future library services. RTD in the form of a large-scale demonstrator is identified as a suitable way to achieve integration and promotion of strong authentication technology.
