Periodic Reporting for period 2 - AARC2 (Authentication and Authorisation For Research and Collaboration)
Período documentado: 2018-05-01 hasta 2019-04-30
AARC2 enhances the AARC blueprint and the related framework policies to:
- Improve adoption of federated access – Promote federated access key aspects, leverage identity providers outside the academic boundaries and deliver training modules.
- Address eScience requirements – Enhance the blueprint architecture delivered in AARC1 to include authorisation aspects and to to provide a model where the research communities are the heart of the research collaboration. The two main principles driving AARC BPA 2018 are: (a) a user should be able to register once and be able to access and share any resources available within a specific collaboration and (b) a service provider should be able to connect it services to one point, if chooses to do so, and have its services available to any community that it supports.
- Offer support for global policies – Work on and sponsor the development of key policy frameworks that aim to make the AARC BPA more secure and expand eduGAIN as needed.
- Make results sustainable – Pilot results in production environments and ensure that pilots operations and, security and policy frameworks rest with r/e-infrastructures.
