October 2007 – January 2013 Employed by CESIA ( Center for Developement and Management of IT Services ) at the University of Bologna – Italy (the oldest university in Europe, counting at the moment 100.000 students).

Involved in the following projects:

• Identity management for students, employees and professors at University of Bologna.

Developped a web application for employees’ and students’ badge activation: badges allow personnel to mark shifts, have granted access to specific areas, generaly identify oneself and put digital signature on public documents thanks to an embedded cryptographic chip (Smart Card).

The web application takes care of the entire process of activation of the badges: from printing to downloading of digital certificates to the badge. Certificates are fetched remotly from a Certification Authority system – Infocert, one of the partners in this project.

Developement was carried out usingVisual Studio 2005/2008 IDE Team

System Edition. Important aspects of the project where the interaction of the system with the card printers, Smart Card Readers, digital signature handling and cryptography.

• University Single Sign-On: the system allows users to authenticate to various information sources and services by using a single pair of institutional credentials (username e password). Single Sign-On grants federation access to on-line resources exposed by Italian education and research institutes supporting this common framework (for example: GARR Idem).

• Signature engine: selected and managed a digital signature engine shared by all applications supporting dematerialization procedures. The engine is used for exams verbalization with cryptographic tokens.

• Digital Stamp: integrated the “Timbro digitale” solution produced by Secure-Edge in the process of digital signature re-materialization and verification. Implemented a web service wrapper which offers services to other internal applications upon request. The “Timbro digitale” solution is used for interoperability between public administrations.
