Auth-X provides the Web-based authentication component for the R-BOSS system.

Auth-X is the web based authentication component for all R-BOSS applications (Actual-X, News-X, Track-x, etc). Access to all R-Boss applications initiates after and an Auth-X session. Though Auth-X is not directly access by users, it plays a fundamental role in tying the various R-BOSS applications together.

The User module/library is used by R-BOSS applications to authenticate users against a central user database. The User module also authorizes the level of permissions a user has and what task the user is allowed to perform. In addition to the User module/library, Auth-X is comprised of web based CGI pages. These CGI pages all allow new users to add themselves, pending administrator approval. Administrators then approve new users and authorize allowed program access.

Each of the R-Boss programs has different types of permissions, and the proper use of the Auth-X system can ensure that each user has sufficient rights to do what he or she needs to do-but nothing more. Auth-X enables users to change their own passwords and apply for permissions on the various R-BOSS programs. Auth-X administrators (generally within the language service) are notified via e-mail and are then able to authorize - or deny - the privileges without the intervention of technical support staff.

Auth-X Administrators are entrusted as the gatekeeper to important services and data. Administrators set the level of privileges the users has to perform task within the R-BOSS programs.
