LT-L: Authentication & Authorisation at UCD Digital Library



In March 2015, UCD Digital Library (UCDDL) became Ireland's first trusted digital repository, gaining the Data Seal of Approval accreditation. A number of our most widely-used collections and datasets are restricted to authorised researchers and institutions only. In order to enable and augment access to these resources, UCDDL has recently implemented a user authentication and authorisation system. This utilises open-source technologies and allows for users to register via the Edugate federation and OpenID, as well as ubiquitous social networks such as Google+ and Facebook. The user registration and sign-in processes are now much more streamlined and the administrative overheads are greatly reduced.

This lightning talk will briefly discuss the implementation and policies associated with the service, as well as the benefits and planned future developments.
