Over the past decade many new web-based administrative applications have been implemented at the University of Washington. As these systems were introduced, procedures and mechanisms to control access to them were also developed. In order to counter the proliferation of authorization mechanisms a central, infrastructural approach to authorization has been developed. ASTRA represents that approach: The goal of ASTRA is to provide a single point of entry for authorization on the Web.
