Zusammenfassung Technical University Berlin is in the process of issuing smartcards to employees and students and providing a wide range of campus-related services over the internet. Therefore an infrastructure supplying security services like user-authentication, secure connections and access control is necessary. A further goal is the reuse of existing applications and network technology to keep costs reasonably low. This calls for an application-independent, highly flexible security framework. Security measures must also be scalable, since applications operate on different levels of confidentiality. This paper describes the implemented security framework, which uses application level firewalls to implement smartcard-based authentication and a Single-Sign-On (SSO) mechanism. It will be pointed out that such a system will only be maintainable in the future if role-based access control is introduced. The paper describes the migration from a password- to a smartcard-based authentication which will be extended with a role-based access control (RBAC) mechanism in the next step.
