The DCO Community Infrastructure includes the DCO Community Portal, based on the Drupal content management platform; the DCO Data Portal, built on the VIVO semantic data management platform; and the DCO Data Repository, using the CKAN data repository platform. Starting on 01 Aug 2014 the DCO Infrastructure will provide single-sign-on capability between its services using the well-known Shibboleth architecture.
