EEMA – the independent, European not-for-profit association for e-Business

The culmination of 12 months work within EEMA’s Role Based Access Control (RBAC) project will be launched in the form of a RBAC user guide at the EEMA Identity Services workshop to be held on 26-27 February 2003 at IBM (UK) Ltd in Edinburgh.

The guide will be of use to business managers wishing to understand not only the role of RBAC within the sphere of Identity Management, but also those needing advice about how to implement system effectively. The document has been compiled by EEMA Members including the AstraZeneca, European Commission, Guardeonic, KPMG, IBM, the National Health Service, Protek, Royal Mail,Technology Nexus Danmark, Siemens and Volvo, and contains sections on methodology, lessons learnt, user-based case studies, standards as well as a pointer to future trends.

“The user guide is the result of users, vendors and consultants coming together to exchange views, experiences and ideas concerning the relatively new area of role-based access control as well as the confluence of identity services and business process management,” said David Goodman, chair of the project, and IBM Directory Integrator Specialist. “There is a tremendous amount of detailed information within the guide, a large part of which was produced within the RBAC project itself. I anticipate it will form a core feature of the programme for the forthcoming workshop,” he continued.

EEMA’s February workshop entitled “Identity Solutions for Better Businesses” will also concentrate on the broader area of identity services, with presentations and discussions centred around the building of an identity infrastructure through metadirectory and e-provisioning services, the role of security including authentication and authorisation services as well as federated identity management on the Internet. Participation is open to EEMA members and non-members; further information about the workshop and the RBAC project can be found at

The workshop is sponsored by IBM (UK) Ltd, with evening hospitality courtesy of MaXware International.
