Abstract

This is the final report for the project Web-based services in a coalition, security issues. The project has studied the possibilities to, on short notice, create a communication system which is to be used with previously unknown partners. In order to be willing to share information and services it is assumed that the participating partners want to be able to control how their information and services are being used. The proposed solution is a web-based system designed with open source software, mainly Distributed Access Control System (DACS) and role-based access control (RBAC).
