Title: LINCS Authentication Domain Interface (ADI) Logon protocol: (Preliminary specification and implementation guide)

Abstract

This paper defines the Authentication Domain Interface (ADI) Logon protocol for the LINCS distributed operating system that in conjunction with the Inter-Authentication-Domain Logon protocol gives users of LINCS terminals the ability to logon to hosts that do not support LINCS. In addition, it gives users of terminals connected to networks that do not directly support LINCS the ability to logon and use LINCS distributed resources. Hereafter, for the sake of brevity, the Inter-Authentication-Domain Logon Protocol is called the IAD Logon protocol. The IAD Logon protocol specification describes how the network-level protocols, transport-level protocols, and terminal protocols of separate authentication domains can be interfaced and defines an inter-authentication-domain logon protocol that supports user authentication and user authorization in the context of multiple authentication domains. The provision of inter-authentication-domain interactive services in LINCS requires interfacing the LINCS network-level, transport-level, virtual terminal, and logon protocols to their corresponding inter-authentication-domain standards through an interactive services gateway. In LINCS, an interactive services gateway is naturally structured as a set of (potentially) distributed modules. This paper describes how a LINCS interactive services gateway can be implemented and describes the actions each of its modules take in the suggested implementation.
