Security is one of the greatest concerns in the Distributed Applications Development these days. More over when client and server application scenario is dealt with security requirements, Trust between interacting entities also becomes a major concern. When designing security enabled application, it’s a major challenge to provide proper user level authentication/authorization mechanisms according to the system operations in user friendly way.
In this thesis, we have designed & implemented new security architecture for the Virtual Organization File System (VOFS) to solve authentication & authorization requirements with respect to user’s identity. For better user experience & to provide mechanism to protect user credentials during authentication, delegation using Single Sign On is implemented. Previously, system was developed with traditional Username/Password scheme in order to provide authentication/authorization.
Apart from the Authentication/Authorization mechanism required in the thesis, it was also required to re-structure the deployable packages in such a way that to reduce administration overhead for the application while installing & running.
