There currently is a joint AIS-ACNS-VUDAT project I am leading that is
looking into single sign-on solutions in general and Sentinel in particular.
Now don't get too excited, this is on a pretty slow track. Currently we are
evaluating and comparing Sentinel and a couple of open source single sign-on
solutions, CAS from Yale U., Cosign from U. of Michigan are probably the two
leading ones, for a beta-type implementation of single sign-on between the
Magic system and ANGEL. It is construed as research/testing leading
eventually toward an enterprise single sign-on solution.
Now, if when you say "web service," you are referring to "web services"
(i.e. SOAP, XML, etc. type architecture), then I hope I'm not giving out any
trade secrets by saying that AIS has web services-based versions of
Sentinel, including a Linux/PHP version (developed with College of
Engineering/Dennis Kelly)in beta right now.

Subject: [MSUNAG] Sentinel
Are there any plans to make sentinel (https://www.ais.msu.edu/sentinel.htm)
into a web service? This would be infinitely useful as it would allow any
server type or programming language access to the tool.
I would like to implement it to bring my department closer to single sign on
but don't run windows web servers.
