|Asanka Herath||Developing plug-ins for Network Identity Manager|
The Network Identity Manager is a plug-in extensible identity management
application that is distributed with MIT Kerberos for Windows 3. This is
built on top of the Khimaira framework introduced at the Best Practices
Workshop in 2005. The application relies on plug-ins to handle the logistics
of dealing with different types of credentials and identities. Currently, it
supports Kerberos 5, Kerbeors 4 and with the OpenAFS plug-in available
separately, AFS tokens.
While the functionality currently provided would be sufficient for most organizations and individuals, some may have specific requirements or may need support for other credential types. This presentation will demonstrate the architecture behind the Network Identity Manager and how to develop custom plug-ins that extend it to support these credentials management needs.
