"DENIM, which stands for Directory Enabled Net
Infrastructure Model, is to be the architecture for network
services that leverage Novell Directory Services (NDS) but run on
multiple platforms. It's an extension of the company's Net
Services concept, first outlined last month..."
"In a set of demonstrations, Novell executives illustrated this
blurring of the boundaries between intranet and extranet. Novell
showcased a new NDS feature, Federation, which links two or more
NDS directories in separate enterprises. Users from one directory
can become members of a group that's part of another directory.
This allows an administrator at company A to assign rights to an
employee of company B. The Federation feature is included in the
beta version of a new NDS release distributed to all Brainshare
"The DENIM architecture calls for Novell and other vendors to
develop applications that leverage the directory. These will be
delivered as packaged software products, turnkey appliances and
services hosted by Novell itself, said Steve Adams, senior vice
president of marketing at Novell."
