EduLib launches Muse Proxy 3.0, the first product of a series that will come from EduLib’s new Education and Library Information Discovery suite

EduLib, a privately held software development company from Craiova, Romania, announces the release of Muse® Proxy 3.0. This is the first product of a series that will come from EduLib’s new Education and Library Information Discovery suite.

Muse® Proxy is a highly customizable multi-platform proxy server, easy to use and configure, acting successfully as a gateway to authenticated restricted content, rewriting web server, Web Access Management (WAM), proxy server and reverse proxy. It has been used for more than 10 years within the Muse Federated Search Platform to manage the authentication to resources and the navigation to full text, by restoring the server session on end-user browser. Starting with this version Muse® Proxy is also commercialized as a stand-alone product.

Dr. Peter Noerr (1946-2013), MuseGlobal’s Chief Technology Officer explains: “Muse Proxy is a ‘rewriting proxy’, and offers an alternative solution that eliminates the need to configure individual browsers, further reducing the burden on system administrators”.

The major new feature in Muse® Proxy 3.0 is the support for Muse® Proxy Applications. Muse® Proxy Applications provide a fully configurable interface allowing administrators to setup remote or local Data Sources (“Sources”) and where end users enjoy a single sign-on for all of the subscribed data. Library Administrators can add Sources to the Muse® Proxy Application depending of licensing rights. Each Source stores the necessary code and credentials to get to the target Data Source. In this way, Muse® Proxy enables end users to reach all configured targets with a single sign-on and conceals target authentication credentials. Muse® Proxy Applications can use configurable login modules such as: User/Password, IP, LDAP, IMAP, SQL, FTP, Custom or any combination.

“Muse Proxy is Your Gateway to the World! It is everybody’s outer and inner world. It summarizes almost everything a library, company or university needs to connect to external as well as internal resources. Its excellent user access and resources management make the product very reliable and trustworthy.”, said Mihai Popa, CEO at EduLib.

Muse® Proxy 3.0 has also many other features like: end users can now access Muse® Proxy using HTTPS, the HTTPS sites can be rewritten, the overall visual interface was improved, the documentation was extended with new information and workflow graphics and many more. Improvements were done to the Muse® Proxy Administrator Console too, such as, implemented friendly edit panels, updated interface for better display and more functionality, improved help sections.

The new features and updates offered by Muse® Proxy 3.0 are available from EduLib at http://www.edulib.com/products/muse-proxy/.

“The features of this product, starting from the multiple IPs feature, which excludes the need of many physical machines, to the intelligent page rewriting using proprietary strategies make this product a state of the art of its kind. This allows web sites URLs to be rewritten without special coding, including JavaScript and CSS resources. The HTTP Cookies returned by the target server in the Set-Cookie HTTP header are also managed by the Muse Navigation Manager in an automatic manner without the administrator intervention. Muse Navigation Manager can be used for session replication and full-text navigation, inter-domain connectivity and accessing authenticated resources.”, said David Dascalescu, CTO at EduLib.
