Seminar: OneVRE Launch Event, Tue 12th April 2pm (BST)

Tobias Schiebeck, Meik Poschen and Martin Turner, University of 
Manchester: "JISC OneVRE Project: Creating a Secure Distribution 
Cross-Portlet system for Sharing Electronic Documents".

Tuesday 12th April,  2pm-3pm (BST) Room 1.10, Kilburn Building The 
University of Manchester

Website launch and demonstration: With Access Grid Technologies we can 
now join Portal based VREs. Using SARoNGS to authenticate users and 
provide VO attributes with the X.509 proxy certificates, secure 
communication provides a Virtual Organization based access to electronic 
documents stored in the Venues. These documents can be securely shared; 
but also have expiry dates when they are removed automatically.
A key component is the joining of Portal environments using the lesser 
known Access Grid technologies, in order to keep researchers within 
their familiar secure environment while reducing administration overheads.
