– May 3, 2013 COM.Geo 2013 is a professional development opportunity for researchers, decision-makers, developers, and application users to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in the field of computing for geospatial. The workshop is a great opportunity to get involved in a more
focused discussion. The workshop Location Based Access Control on Geospatial Data with GeoXACML Policies will introduce the theoretical base of the GeoXACML policy language and provide attendees an environment for hands-on excercises.
Many different types of high quality and up-to-date geospatial information are available from different providers. Often, Intranet solutions exist where trusted users can access information with very few access constraints. In contrast, making information available to users outside of a trusted environment requires the implementation of many security requirements of which Access Control is paramount.
When implementing access control systems, a challenge exists in enabling access rights that are highly dependent on many different things. Therefore, it is usually a good idea to separate the implementation and the configuration of the access control system. This allows the use of mature software that can be configured to enforce specific access rights.
About the workshop
1. The theoretical base of the GeoXACML Policy Language
GeoXACML is the OGC standard language aimed specifically at declaring and enforcing geo-specific access rights, which protect access to geospatial data or services. This workshop will introduce GeoXACML and will illustrate how to write GeoXACML Policies for OGC WMS and WFS services.
2. Hands-on training
The practical portion of the workshop will provide attendees an environment for hands-on exercises to experiment writing GeoXACML policies and testing them in a demo environment.
