Aiakos (0.2)

by Ihor Berehulyak last modified 2009-01-13
Released on 2004-04-10 by ICP Europe for Plone 1, Zope 2 under GPL - GNU General Public License available for All platforms.
Software development stage: beta
Aiakos is an innovative distributed authentication system, based on Zope and Plone. Much of the heavy lifting is done using the LDAPUserFolder.

Aiakos allows you to provide a central sign-on system for a network of websites. All login and registration activity takes place on the central Aiakos server. Participating sites receive encrypted authentication packages from the authentication server, with which they can authenticate users.

Client libraries are provided for Microsoft Windows (as COM objects) and as a Zope Product for Plone 1. Plone 2 support is in CVS, but not in the main package. The central user database is stored on an LDAP server, and participating sites are provided with access to the LDAP server for complex user-related activity - however, most sites will never need this.

In addition a distributed event logging system is included, that allows interesting events to be recorded on participating sites, and then collected by a central server.

Autoconfiguration of Plone client portals. Centralised audit trailing of registration and login activity. Flexible permissions system, allows central administration of access to services on client systems.
