Abstract

This paper describes the similarities and differences between the Akenti and PERMIS authorisation infrastructures. It describes their features, ease of use and performance statistics. This report was compiled from: a desk comparison of published documentation, by talking to the authors of both infrastructures, and by building both infrastructures along with a test application. The performance statistics are limited to some extent, in that it was not possible to build multiple arbitrarily complex policies in the time available. Also we did not run Akenti as a stand alone server, since PERMIS has no equivalent capability.
