[eoxserver-dev] Implementing Access Control into the EOXServer

Today, Stefan and I met and talked about a possible integration of a security layer into the EOX Server with the Shibboleth framework. Authentication will be handled by the Shibbboleth IdP and ServiceProvider. The plan is to add an additional handler (or extending the OWSCommonHandler) which can access the user attributes provided by the Shibboleth SP and can perform an authorization request at the PDP. In case of a positive authz. decision the hander could forward the request to the next handler, if negative the service would return an error message.
I would like to hear your opinions and comments to this proposal.
