idFS Version 2.2

The next version of Identity Federation System (idFS) is complete and deployed for the and web sites. idFS V2.2 core component is now a standalone library (formerly it was integrated into the WebComposition Service Linking System, WSLS). This makes it much easier to deploy, not requiring any sort of programming to secure an application. Additionally, idFS has been extended with the AuthorizationManager, a Web application to manage the access control policy for idFS-secured applications and services.

Piled Higher and Deeper


A few weeks ago, I started to work on my PhD thesis, which since then has been growing slowly but consistently. With the semester break and nearly the entire remaining group on holiday, it's currently an excellent time to get things started. If all works according to plan, I should be able to finish it by spring 2008.
