Session 9B

Middleware - what it is and where it's at
Chair: Henk Eertink, Telematics Institute, The Netherlands

The term “middleware” has been coined to describe the collection of distributed services which are required by networked applications in the Internet. These include security services, authentication, authorisation and directory services. Incompatible standards and non inter-operating technologies increase the cost and complexity of advanced network services. This session will review the current state and direction of developments in this area.
