WP3 (JRA1) (Diego Scardaci)

Dissemination reports

Milestones & Deliverables

Task JRA1.1 Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure

  • user enrollment service now available for testing from GRNET (component of IdP proxy service), purpose of this is creating a link between X509 cert/SAML credential, the idea is to enforce it for all users (register to EGI with own credentials to be known) - usability/GUI need to be checked
    • user goes to service (e.g. GOCDB)
    • is authenticated with own IdP (e.g. ELIXIR AAI)
    • registration in EGI AAI is requested if user is new (after this this step is no longer requested), requires informed agreement and acceptance of policies. In case of ORCID or social ID to be associated to EGI account, this is possible in the enrollment service -> this allows authentication with different identifies and single EGI account
