"Dolomite" is an acronym for "Directories Led by Members".
The aim of this software is to federate digital identities management for multiple computer-supported collaborative work environments.
On the Internet, digital identities management is usually about:
- Authentification ("Who is it?"),
- Authorization ("What can he/she do?"),
- Accounting ("What did he/she do?").
The concept of Dolomite is to manage all three in a collaborative way.
Any member can invite a new member (and guarantee his/her real name).
Any member can set and reset his/her own password.
- LDAP compatibility.
- Multitenancy (different communities can share the same server instance).
2009: Aurélien Bénel prototyped a co-optation-based management system for LDAP directories.
2010-2011: Aurélien Bénel's students and Diana Zambon developed a new version with a focus on usability and easier deployment.
