Abstract

In this paper, we present Muradora, a new turnkey GUI for Fedora that addresses the need for federated identity and flexible access control. Muradora incorporates a new authorization architecture that moves the access control enforcement back to Fedora. This allows users to access the back-end repository via multiple interfaces, but still having the same consistent access control across all of them. Muradora also presents a new standard-based framework for metadata validation and input that allows new metadata supports without modification of the core GUI code.
