ESUP-Portail ESUP-Portail is a consortium of French Universities. Its goal is to provide a complete and open solution to Universities and University-level colleges who wish to offer integrated access to their services and information for their students and staff. This includes user data storage and many applications (such as CMS) also needing storage.
We present the characteristics needed for such a system, in terms of access, security, ease of use and functionalities. The WebDAV protocol and its extensions are overviewed, with pro and cons detailed. We finally show the architecture of the planned system.
