Application Resouces are used to control access to a variety of applications and specifically not for authenticating to a shell or GUI session on a UMIACS computer.
This allows users of these ApplicationResources to mix both UMIACS users and off-site users that do not necessarly have a UMIACS account.
The services that utilize this for now are,
- Apache servers maintained by staff that require authentication and authorization
To allow our users to manage these [[ApplicationResource]s better we have created the ApplicationResourceUtil located here https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu/arutil that can manage your [[ApplicationResource]s.
