User profile database
This library deals with maintaining user profiles and session-based cookies to support web servics. The overall picture is that we have
- Libraries to establish the user identity using mostly HTTP authentication or federated authentication using e.g., oauth.
- This library to maintain information about a user.
- An authorization library that reasons about the user profile to decide wether an identified user has access to a particular resource.
The profile library provides a stable API between the various components. The main library (user_profile) is merely a dispatching library that connects to a backend implementation. This allows for backends ranging from a simple backed up Prolog database to distributed databases.
Work in progress. Currently developed in the context of SWISH.
