gLite VOMS server (MySQL backend version)
VOMS (Virtual Organization Membership Service) serves as a central
repository for user authorization information, providing support for
sorting users into a general group hierarchy, keeping track of their
roles, etc. Its functionality may be compared to that of a Kerberos
KDC server. The VOMS Admin service is a web application providing
tools for administering member databases for VOMS, the Virtual
Organization Membership Service.
VOMS Admin provides an intuitive web user interface for daily
administration tasks and a SOAP interface for remote clients. (The
entire functionality of the VOMS Admin service is accessible via the
SOAP interface.) The Admin package includes a simple command-line
SOAP client that is useful for automating frequently occurring batch
operations, or simply to serve as an alternative to the full blown
web interface. It is also useful for bootstrapping the service.
This VOMS server uses MySQL as a backend.
