Athens is an Access Management System for controlling access to web- based subscription services. Developed by EduServ, Athens developed the technology to accept X.509 certificates as an alternative (to using passwords) means of authentication. Athens is, fundamentally, a central repository of organisations, user names and passwords with associated rights and generally gives users in the higher education sector access to a variety of data source facilities.
