An experiment scheduler and federated authentication solution for remote laboratory access Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper addresses the needs involved in authentication and authorization when target engineering experiments are exported from the remote experimental server to an end-user experiment scheduler web server (SWS). A solution is discussed based on using a novel unified framework for engineering experiments and integrating MD5 encryption and decryption algorithm-based security management engine for a federated authentication and authorization uniform resource locator (URL). The established remote engineering laboratory at Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) demonstrates the efficiency of the proposed SWS and authentication method.
