General Project Information

  • Leader: Daniel Kouril (CESNET)
  • Mailing List: vt-egi-federated-identity@mailman.egi.eu
  • Status: Active
  • Start Date: 10/Nov/2011
  • End Date: When its goal is achiveved, but not later than 30/Apr/2012
  • Meetings: 12/12/2011 - Kick-off meeting

Motivation

Federated identity services could significantly simplify access to the infrastructure. Introducing federated identity mechanisms in EGI is a requirement from many communities. This VT project would take a step towards this direction, by assessing the readiness of the NGIs in adopting some type of federated identity provision mechanism for accessing services (e.g. Terena Certificate Services). Several NGIs have done developments towards this direction.

Output

The expected output of this project is a report on the current coverage of NGIs with federated identity provision services and recommendation on mechanisms to increase the federated identity providers coverage within EGI. The report can be used by both NGIs and EGI.eu outside of this VT to increase the coverage or to initiate other types of related actions.

Tasks

Task 1: Assess the coverage of Terena Certificate Providers in NGIs

  • Check whether the key institutes form the NGIs are connected to the TCS
  • Check whether the NGIs have process to add institutes to TCS and what the process look like
  • Collect info about other types of services similar to TCS that NGIs already use
