Dear Mr. Zavras, I read that you proposed the use of LDAP as authentication system for CLIO. This is the first time I get in touch with this technology (as well as many other students I believe). To my understandings, the system allow us to store user informations (with corresponding attributes username, pass, role, etc) in one centralize database and read the corresponding entries we want super fast. How exactly can we retrieve those informations from inside our application (eg a person record)? Are we restrict using one platform-framework to intgrate with the LDAP server (either Node.js, a framework based on Python or php, etc)? For example our app is running on Node.js and we installed a module to integrate with the LDAP server. Is this method appropriate or do we handle the process differently? Next, I want to ask if you plan to store component data as well in LDAP or we can propose the use of a RDBMS? I believe this is more appropriate as we can create relationships between different components. Finally, I did not understood the Files section very well. The word "file" refers to a single text file that contains source code or a license file? I think it refers to source code file. Also, some more explanations is needed here: "...by the means of SPDX files." Do we have to add an option for user to upload ".spdx" files and process the informations in our app? For instance if the user use a Complex Component A that includes simpler components A1, A2, ..., A100 (every single one with a different spdx license file) do we have to provide an option for the user to upload all the appropriate .spdx license files and visualize the results on his/her screen? It would be very helpful if you can provide some user stories in this section and in the overall project in general. Really appreciate your help, George G. Gkasdrogkas
