    2121The web service is effectively a ''proxy'' to the !MyProxy service.  It translates the HTTP requests from the client into a request to the !MyProxy server using the standard [http://grid.ncsa.illinois.edu/myproxy/protocol/ MyProxy protocol].  It does this using this [http://pypi.python.org/pypi/MyProxyClient Python MyProxyClient] package.

    2525One drawback is that since there is an intermediary (the web service) between the !MyProxy server and the client, it is not possible for the client to authenticate with the !MyProxy server directly with SSL.  As such, only operations like logon are suited to this approach.  To make a complete implementation of the !MyProxy operations, the HTTP interface would need to be integrated directly into the !MyProxy server.
