User Account Service
ObjectiveDue to the distributed nature of the eSciDoc authentication, the system does not come with a user administration. All users are maintained in local identity management systems. The infrastructure will never store any user credentials like e.g., passwords. However, in order to be able to associate users with roles, the infrastructure stores proxy objects for users that have accessed at least once one of the infrastructure's services. The proxies are called 'user accounts' and are managed by the User Account Service.
