Session Title Middleware sessions
Chair Yasuo Okabe [Kyoto University Japan], James Sankar [AARNet Australia]
Objective To hold a morning or afternoon session covering two key areas middleware for wireless networks and infrastructure middleware. Middleware for wireless networks would cover an eduroam practical and advanced session, whilst infrastructure middleware would focus on identity access management business case, best practice and reasons to consider federations.
Target Audience R&E networks, identity providers, application developers, middleware experts, wireless technicians.
Expected No. of Participants 40
Agenda of Session 11:00-12:30 (90min) eduroam session (Chair: Yasuo Okabe)

11:00-11:05 Welcome

11:05-11:25 The Australian Access Federationdownload
James Sankar , AARNET

Abstract: This talk will cover developments in Australia with specific references to the work of the MAPS Project, MAMS Shibboleth test-bed, NCRIS and the Australian Access Federation.  It also covers work done to support APAN.  The talk concludes with a look at the future in Australia and APAN.

Biography: James Sankar is Director for Applications and Services at AARNet.  James has extensive experience in managing middleware projects and its application to deliver secure and scalable applications and services.  James worked has worked for UKERNA and AARNet.  He has chaired the TF-Mobility group that developed eduroam, he is the co-chair of the APAN Middleware Working Group, Steering Committee member for Smart Services CRC and is a member of the Australia India Business Council.

11:25-11:45 Update on eduroam.jpdownload
H Goto[remote] (Tohoku Univ), H Sone

Abstract: After the eduroam-JP started its operation in August 2006, some universities and institutes have connected their W-LAN networks to eduroam-JP, and now we have six members. I like to talk about an idea for new configuration of VPN
in eduroam roaming networks.

11:45-12:05 Cross-Campus WLAN Roaming Environment in Taiwan.download
Che-nan Yang (TWAREN, National Center for High-Performance Computing, NCHC)

Abstract: The Cross-Campus WLAN Roaming project was sponsored by the National Science Council (NSC) and instructed by the National Science and Technology Program for Telecommunications (NTP), the goal of this project is to establish an cross-campus WLAN roaming environment and architecture, to provide service and technical consultation for the system, to integrate all
schools’ WLAN resources, to develop new applications, and to jump start the development of new wireless industries within
Taiwan. By December 31st, 2006, there were a total of 163 colleges and universities in Taiwan. 90% of them have
established campus WLAN environment and 55% of them have joined the cross-campus WLAN roaming system.  By July, 2007,
the number of schools and research institutes which has joined this project had reached 110. This project’s WLAN
roaming system covers whole Taiwan area.  It also uses AARNet Roaming Center to connect to its European Roaming
Center. http://wlanrc.nchc.org.tw/web_eng/index1-1.html

Biography:Che-nan Yang received the B.S. degree in Computer and Information Science from Tunghai University in 1998 and
the M.S. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from National Sun Yat-Sen University in 2000. Since 2001, he
has been a member of the division of Network Technology Division, National Center for High-Performance Computing
(NCHC), where he is currently an associate researcher. He has been responsible for research and development of
TWAREN (Taiwan Advanced Research and Education Network). His research interests include network performance
measurement, network management, Voice over IP. 

12:05-12:25 An idea of China eduroam development steps and structure design download
Ting Yang (UESTC, China)

Abstract: After University of electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) started a eduroam test bed in July 2006, we have started a national eduroam test bed this year. I like to talk about an idea for CERNET (China Education and Research Network) eduroam develop steps and structure design.

Biography: Ting Yang received M.S. degree in Computer Science from UESTC, and worked as engineer at southwest regional network center of CERNET.

12:25-12:30 Session Wrap Up & Q&A

14:00-15:30 (90min) W-LAN roaming issues (Chair Hideaki Sone)

14:00-14:20 Advances in eduroam authentication and authorisation: RadSec and DAMe download
Stefan Winter [remote](RESTENA)

Abstract: The talk presents recent advances in the European eduroam infrastructure. RadSec is a reliable, secure transport profile for the RADIUS protocol to enhance the authentication process. DAMe is a middleware project that will augment the RADIUS authentication decision with user attributes fetched from an arbitrary AAI to determine the user's privilege level.

Biography: Stefan Winter is research and development engineer at RESTENA, the Luxembourg Research Network. He joined RESTENA and the GN2 JRA5 project in November 2004 and is work item leader for roaming in JRA5 since January 2007.

14:20-14:40 KT's Unified Authentication System
Ms Jeong Hee Bang (tentative)

14:40-15:00 MIAKO Network Service in Kyotodownload
Yasuo Okabe, (Kyoto Univ)

15:00-15:20 Fast Authentication for Secure Wireless Servicesdownload

Abstract: We design and implement a fast authentication system with robust security on wireless accesses, for the purpose of providing  wireless Internet services.  We propose a fast authentication system that realizes authentication of wireless terminals, session-key exchange, authentication of base stations and retrieval of network information, just by exchanging one round-trip message.  We implemented our proposed system using IEEE802.11b as a wireless access technology.
