Abstract
In Summer 2005 a task was undertaken to build and implement a rapid portal deployment environment based on a content management system. DRDC projects such as MSOC and ARMADA have seen and reaped the benefit of utilizing portal-based environments. The objective was to implement such a portal based on readily available open source products in order to reduce the costs and yet benefit from a highly configurable, flexible, robust, and low-cost solution. The current portal described in this document is supporting both internal DRDC clients as well as international clients via the TTCP. The main objective of this document is to share the experiences of implementing just such a portal and describe how to build and rapidly deploy one. It also presents how to ensure due diligence with respect to its security.
