An Experiment Scheduler and Federated Authentication Solution for Remote Laboratory Access
This paper addresses the needs of authentication and authorization when the target engineering experiment objects are exported from the remote experiment provide server to an end user experiment scheduler web server (SWS). A solution is discussed based on using a novel unified framework for engineering experiment objects and integrating the MD5 encryption and decryption algorithm based security management engine for a federated authentication and authorization uniform resource locator (URL). The established remote engineering laboratory at Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) demonstrates the efficiency of proposed SWS and authentication method.
