D4.4.1: The Credentials Service Components – Preliminary

The current deliverable is one of two deliverables reporting the status of implementation of the mechanisms ensuring secure interactions among internal and external SPECS components.

This deliverable demonstrates the SPECS implementation of secure interactions among SPECS components and implementation of a requester to a service provider authentication. The requester is either some internal SPECS component which acts as a client to various services, or some part of the deployed SPECS application acting on behalf of End-users. At the opposite end the service provider is either a software part of the same SPECS application, or even service offered as a SaaS by a CSP.
