Description of the work
Wider impact of this work
Driven by their common needs for federated identity management (FIM) representatives from a variety of research communities, including photon/neutron facilities, social science & humanities, high-energy physics, atmospheric science, bioinformatics and fusion energy, have come together to discuss how to address FIM-related issues with the objective to define a common policy and trust framework for Identity Management based on existing structures, federations and technologies. Four workshops have been held since the summer of 2011 with the involvement of these communities, various technology and community projects and initiatives. The set of requirements, recommendations and plans that emerged through these workshops will be presented in the talk.
