The Infrastructure - Availability, Authentication and Access

The project will undertake strategic work to plan functionality enhancements in data access and data exploration. It will also develop functional specifications for a Shibboleth-based single data-users registration and Sign-On system, incorporating a common CESSDA-wide End-user-licence and logging of data use, for statistical reporting and evaluation purposes and potential solutions to the problem of a common identifier system for data resources, with a version identification for version control purposes. However, all this is dependent upon some thorough procedural groundwork. Europe still consists of some 30+ independent countries with national lawgiving protecting data and privacy. The project aims to build an infrastructure of content and the paper will discuss this as a two-fold problem, availability and access, technical and procedural (legal, administrative and procedures) to ensure access and use. Who can access what and for which purposes is still a very relevant question.
