Federated vs Local Roles (hereinafter, the Lectio) is the lesson part of the Middleware Essentials lesson that introduces its participants to CNM Cabin. This lesson belongs to the Introduction to CNM Cloud session of EmployableU Concepts.


The predecessor lectio is System-User Roles.


It is worth mentioning that WorldOpp Middleware manages its own system-user roles and every other service of CNMCyber uses that role to allow that user to access its resources. WorldOpp Middleware's system-user roles are called federated.
Going further, every service is supported by their own systems and those systems can manage their own local-system roles. For instance, if WorldOpp Middleware identifies you and informs CNM Social that your federated-systems role is CertUser, CNM Social checks its own database and clarify that you joined some communities and, possibly, assigns its local role. If the system's database assigns no local role, then the particular service takes your federated role by default.
Nevertheless, throughout all services of CNMCyber, only WorldOpp Middleware can identify you as you. No other service or system can do that; they rely on WorldOpp Middleware's determination.
