Project Description

SEMIRAMIS defines a Pilot infrastructure to provide e-services with the required underlying secure
authentication and management approach and tests it through two scenarios representing a large number of
options related to ID Management and Secure Data Transfer:

  • A Scenario that involves public and private organizations and legal requirements for exchange of sensitive information.
  • A Scenario that involves worldwide citizen and their requirement to exchange personal information.

For all scenarios the pilot will take in consideration the owner of the information, the ID Provider and the Service Provider with their
interactions, the data flow, the legal context and usage audit. The same infrastructure will be used across both
scenarios. SEMIRAMIS will:

  • Deploys common rules and specifications for secure information management within organizations and across trans-EU e-service chains, including service compositions with public and private e-services;
  • Tests, in real life environments, solutions for various types of cross-domain and cross-stakeholders e-services constellations;
  • Interacts with other EU initiatives to maximize the usefulness of the pilot solutions and services.
  • Provide application level, end-to-end security, paying special attention to privacy concerns when dealing with sensitive information Secure all communications between the End User, ID Provider and Service Provider
  • Support the specific approach of the ID provider in terms of personal or organizational policies
  • Implement a policy management solution, based on the XACML standard, to protect the system access and usage
  • Use the RIGER tool to ensure compliance of agreements between providers, and a dedicated audit tool
    to monitor and report the information flow.


SEMIRAMIS will provide an easy-to-implement and easy-to-use solution for single sign-on and secure access
to services on which novel offerings can be easily deployed.

Technology

SEMIRAMIS will be based on leading edge technologies based on XML derivatives, mainly SAML 2.0 which is largely considered a key technologyin the area of federated identity management. SEMIRAMIS will take advantage of the RADIUS (Remote
Authentication Dial-In User Service) infrastructure which has been successfully brought into production in the last
two years, implemented into an access process based on 802.1X. For achieving data security, a PKI (Public Key
Infrastructure) will be used.
