LICHEN: Location Independent Collaboration in Higher Education Networks

Pervasive Computing and Networks

In the LICHEN project we propose to extend and complement the work of the UKERNA Wireless Advisory Group and TERENA TF-Mobility (which is establishing a RADIUS-based hierarchy of trust for Location Independent Networking) by investigating and developing a generic system for managing and applying authorisation policy pertaining to resources accessed by users in different administrative domains. These users would typically be members of short-lived, distributed collaborations between multi-site – and often multi-disciplinary – groups.
