  • 1. Case study: sChMOLZ + BiCkenBaCh intRanet With tyPO3 Global Solution with two stage access security the company intranet of the leading manufacturer of stainless steel products was converted to TYPO3. In only five months, AOE media built the bilingual In- tranet for the group’s companies worldwide. With the integration of many useful functions for information exchange, product and document search and display, the intranet access required particularly stiff security. the site concept was signed off by the design agency Image Transfer. With the new Schmolz + Bickenbach Group Intranet, a solution has been created to bring the many subsidiaries under a single, easy to operate, TYPO3 roof. Previous problems, particularly regarding content updating and editing, no longer exist with TYPO3, giving the system a very high approval rating with company staff. Challenge Not only did the comprehensive migration of German and English content, as Joern Bock, well as the templating for this particularly information-heavy website pres- Senior Project Manager ent a challenge to the AOE media staff, but also the highly detailed options for AOE media GmbH image and news material, together with a two-stage secure access system via iP-address and login (including username and password) drew deeply on the experience and skill of our developers. As a result, several TYPO3 extensions had to be custom-designed to meet these demands. Special features: • a newly developed extension connects to tyPO3’s own authentication service and compares the logged-in iP-address with that stored in the MySQL-Databank of authorized users; • a specially programmed and adapted augmentation to the news extension compares the results with the content databank, in order to release, store or print exactly the right file as a PDF; • There is a time-operated, automatic content comparison between the news module on the Schmolz + Bickenbach website and the Intranet. 2009 Copyright by AOE media GmbH.

To this end a special extension was pro- PROVidinG grammed, which refers back to the TYPO3 authentication service and its class index which is part of the core program, connects this to the IP-databank and sPeCiaL steeL makes a comparison. Thus IP-addresses which are open, in other words not yet sOLutiOns. in the pre-defined databank, cannot be used to access the Intranet. However, this stage only ensures the staffer “general access” to the intranet content. sealed areas for individual departments at Schmolz + Bickenbach can only be accessed About by staff with the appropriate user name and correct password.
