  About Us
  The APAN Middleware Working Group was established on the 27th January 2006 for a period of 2 years. The Working Group Chair is Professor Yasuo Okabe (Kyoto University), the secretary is Nate Klingenstein (Internet2).
  This group provides APAN members with the opportunity to discuss and participate in the latest middleware developments on topics such as :
  • Identity Access Management (same and single sign on authentication and authorization infrastructures)
  • Federation frameworks (for scalable anywhere secure easy access to online resources)
  • Middleware solutions (Shibboleth, A-Select, Edugain, eduroam etc.)
  • Application integration to middleware (frameworks for common reusable components and tools to deliver specific middleware services)
  • Middleware policy
  This working group is concerned about generating awareness and understanding about middleware and in time hopes to develop collaborative activities with APAN members once middleware activities start to mature. This group has also worked in conjunction with the Grid Committee to cover topics on (1) Middleware (2) Middleware for Higher Education (Identity Access Management) and (3) Grid Middleware (Grid application access and work flow).
