gLite 3.2

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.
