HAN Technical Information

How does HAN work?

HAN can be seen as a gateway for the HTTP data flow between the browser und the WWW-Server, substituting parts of the HTML pages, i.e. every link points to HAN. In this way the HAN-Server can automatically authenticate by the providers of e-journals or online-databases, navigating the way to the destination page and skip unimportant pages.
The HAN-Server is not a Proxy-Server, so that it doesn’t have to be authenticated as a proxy by the browsers. Instead the HAN-Server provides a persistent URL for each e-journal/every online database that you can simply address in your Intranet www-server, for example.

Before a user can access a HAN-PURL and thereby the online sites, it is recommendable the users have already been authenticated. For this purpose HAN provides a variety of authentication services:

  1. IP/DNS-address checker
  2. NT-registration for a particular domain
  3. Registration over a LDAP-Interface (Microsoft ADS, Netscape iPlanet)
  4. Microsoft Active Directory
  5. NetMan Registration 
  6. PICA (CBS und LBS)
  7. SISIS

HAN - das zentrale Gateway II - Der gesamte Verkehr zwischen den Online-Datenbanken und dem Client wird über HAN abgewickelt. Dadurch werden Zugangsbeschränkungen der Datenbanken nicht aufgehoben, sondern durch HAN abgewickelt. Dies erhöht gleichzeitig die Sicherheit und die Verfügbarkeit der Datenbankzugänge.
