About Security Service

The Security Service provides the authentication and authorization functions for the PDS 2010 system. The intent of this service is to control access to interfaces and services that require authentication and authorization (e.g., Monitor, Report, Registry interfaces, etc.). The functionality for this service is satisfied by the open source software package OpenDS, which is a directory service supporting the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

Please send comments, change requests and bug reports to the PDS Operator at pds_operator@jpl.nasa.gov.
