Tendr: Professional Support Services for IAEA WEB SSO infrastructure

Zadavatel: IAEA – The International Atomic Energy Agency, Vídeň

Deadline 14/11 – 17:00 CET

Scope: This Statement of Work describes the IAEA´s requirements for professional support services for the IAEA WEB Single Sign On Infrastructure. This Infrastructure was implemented several years ago as a pivotal component of the IAEA IT security framework. The Infrastructure is split into Production, Development and Quality Assurance environments. The Infrastructure was built to support a solution that was designed and put in place to provide single sign on and federate services for a plethora of internal and external WEB applications. This solution is based on a composition of proprietary technologies (CA Siteminder and IDM; Microsoft Share Point; Microsoft IIS; Linux WEB Servers) and open source SAML providers and libraries. The Infrastructure is currently hosted at the IAEA headquarters located in the Vienna International Center in Vienna, Austria. The IAEA is considering expanding it to a secondary site located in Seibersdorf, Austria and also making it a component of a hybrid cloud datacentre solution which is being constructed using the Microsoft Azure platform. The IAEA also plans to build a separate new Test environment. The IAEA requires the services of a designated team of professional engineers, skilful in all of the aforementioned technologies to provide ongoing operational support and solution engineering for the Infrastructure.
