Investigation of Third Party Rights Service and Shibboleth Modification to Introduce the Service
Sanket Agrawal
Dartmouth TR2003-463

Abstract: Shibboleth is an architecture to support inter-institutional sharing of electronic resources that are subject to access control. Codifying copyright in Shibboleth authorization policies is difficult because of the copyright exceptions which can be highly subjective. Third Party Rights Service is a high-level concept that has been suggested as a solution to approximate the exceptions of copyright law. In this thesis, I investigate the components of the Third Party Rights Service. I design and analyze a modified Shibboleth architecture based on these components. The resulting architecture allows for the phased addition of the resources to make use of the Third Party Rights Service, while keeping the existing resources in Shibboleth.
