 This Building Block Variant...

... belongs to Working Area:   Middleware (MW)
... is an implementation of Building Block Type:   Identity Validation
... is intended for use in Environment:   Data Centre - DMZ


This facility provides authentication of external end-users, to be used in the DMZ Part of the Data Centre

Business purpose

This facility authenticates (external) end-users to determine that their identity claim is true. It is part of the facilities that protect ArchiSurance hosted applications against abuse.

Characteristics & indications of usage

Is used in conjunction with MW.BV.Authorization.DMZ

The user database is an integral part of this Building Block Variant and is not specified in a separate Building Block Variant


When designing a facility to implement this function, inclusion of all the following elements is prescribed; either mandatory, optional or explicitly forbidden:

Element Type Prescribed Rationale
EL.LDAP-compatible Directory Server Click to create! Click to create! mandatory Software component
EL.SNMPv3 Click to create! Click to create! mandatory Management protocol
