A secure repository design for digital dibraries

D-Lib magazine [December 1995]


Abstract: We describe a distributed object-based design for repositories in a digital library infrastructure. This design for Inter-operable Secure Object Stores, ISOS, defines the interfaces to secure repositories that inter-operate with other repositories, with clients, and with other services in the infrastructure. We define the interfaces to ISOS as class definitions in a distributed object system, such as CORBA or OLE. We also define an extension to CORBA security that is used by repositories to secure access to themselves and their contained objects.
