Ruby framework to build Web apps with RDF, Spira and Triple Stores

I am going to be developing a REST based SemWeb application Web backend. 
The frontend will be driven via mobile browsers (iPad, Andriod, etc) and 
will communicate to the Ruby based backend with a triple store to store 
information.

Basically, I am pretty new to Ruby, but have about 14 years experience 
with other Web technologies (javascript, php, c#, asp, java, RDF, 
SPARQL, objective-c, etc). So I know stuff, but not good Ruby stuff :) 
So please don't throw any stones for this question if it is indeed very 
basic. I have been researching into things for about a week without 
coming across anything concrete.

I need a Ruby framework that has a number of things built in: sessions, 
user authentication, authenticated REST calls, role/permission based 
access to content. I had looked to use something like Drupal as a 
backend and write custom modules to access the Triple Store, but Drupal 
is way to heavy to just use it as a login and access based system (I 
have A LOT of experience with Drupal, but it just doesn't seem to fit).

So, all you Ruby guru's out there, can anyone give me a pointer, a link 
or some advice?

Thank you,

David Peterson
