Abstract

The strength of the TISDAG (Technical Infrastructure for Swedish Directory Access Gateways) project's DAG proposal is that it defines the necessary technical infrastructure to provide a single-access- point service for information on Swedish Internet users. The resulting service will provide uniform access for all information -- the same level of access to information (7x24 service), and the same information made available, irrespective of the service provider responsible for maintaining that information, their directory service protocols, or the end-user's client access protocol.
