You may chose to register your deployment of S3DB. This action enables the integration of S3DB deployments, making it possible, given the necessary privileges, to query and share data with other deployments as if the data was available in your local deployment.
Also, registering your deployment enables you to build SPARQL queries that transverse more that one URL - the query is parallelized and redirected to the correct deployment. By assigning a name, a description and keywords, data related to the same entities can be discovered and accessed by those with privileges in your deployment (see permission management for more information).
Currently, only the deployment at http://root.s3db.org is supported by the S3DB team for registration.
There is a total of 3 possible interactions with the mothership:
The function responsible for mothership-deployment interaction is called s3rl.php
Register a new deployment in the mothership
Find information on an existing deployment given deployment_id
In order to update a registered deployment, the mothership requires each deployment to decrypt a message with the private key generated upon configuration of each deployment (the private key must be paired with the publicKey that was sent to the Mothership upon register).
