Current security services

Current Security Services

  • Institutional Accounts including both subscription services and pay per use services.

  • Customization and limited personalization managed by library.

  • Web based scripting provides remote access capability with local control.


Institution description

Institution Description

  • Institutional Members: An institution that has signed an agreement with a Regional Service Provider pledging to contribute all of the institution’s current, Roman alphabet cataloging to WorldCat.

  • Institutional non-members: May license services

  • Institutional Control: Institutions are assigned basic authorization rights at service signup. Resources are granted to institutions based on the service contract.


Issues and goals

Issues and Goals

  • Security Issues:

    • Increased granularity needed to reduce institution costs

    • Inability to delegate rights effectively

    • Limitations of IP address based services

  • Security Goals:

    • Broaden secure access to services

    • Reduce cost of providing services

    • Enable rapid change in services delivered as market demands


Levels of precision

Levels of Precision

  • License terms anticipate the limitations of the current technology.

  • Improvements in technology will enable more precise licensing terms.

  • Precise licensing enables lower resource costs.


Procedure effectiveness

Procedure Effectiveness

  • What works

    • Autho/Password and IP well understood and deliver consistent, reliable results.

  • What doesn’t

    • Local programming is required to move access beyond campus level IP address.

    • Administrative and support costs high for both provider and institution.

Plans

Plans
