Concept Description and Technical Architecture
The NEVIS login renderer (in short: nevisLogRend) serves as a login page renderer for applications. It provides a variety of configuration settings to specify the layout of the login page.
This document contains but a brief description of the environment in which the nevisLogRend is used. Refer to the nevisProxy/nevisAuth documentation for further information. The diagram below shows a typical NEVIS deployment.
The setup is reminiscent of the MVC (model-view-controller) pattern. The model resides in nevisAuth and contains the semantics of the authentication process. Interaction with the model (e.g., a form submission) happens via the controller (nevisProxy) and is visualized in the view (nevisLogRend).
