John Salter and John Beaman, University of Leeds
- Hello: we're John Salter and John Beaman from the University of Leeds.
- We've spent some time trying to write an Access Control system for EPrints. It's been a horror.
- One of our use-cases is for Research Data, but it could be used on other repository types.
Out of the box User Access Control
- EPrints (you all know what this is, right..?) has basic control at the document level - the 'security' field:
- public (Open Access)
- validuser (anyone who's got an account on that EPrints instance)
- staffonly (Repository editors/admins)
- This doesn't cover the requirements for some repositories...
- Control access to EPrints, Documents
- Control access based on:
- User attributes e.g. signed-in via Shibboleth
- Location e.g. on-campus
- Simple interface to assign restrictions
EPACL: EPrints Access Control Layer
- Doesn't overwrite any existing 'security' specified on documents.
