The user authentication system is a part of the Role-
Based Access Control (RBAC) project for the high-level
LHC Control Software (LSA) at CERN. The project is
being developed by LAFS (“LHC at Fermilab Software”)
collaboration between control groups at CERN and
Fermilab. The function of RBAC authentication is to
create, distribute, and manage digital credentials for the
users. We had to consider many constraints dictated by
the existing control system, and diversity of the used
software. This paper describes the general design and
implementation of the authentication system in Java and
C++. We also give and overview of its additional features,
such as Single Sign-On and Role Picker.
