The INDIGO-Datacloud Identity and Access Management service

Not scheduled


Andrea Ceccanti (INFN)


Contemporary distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs) are not easily and securely accessible by common users. Computing environments are typically hard to integrate due to interoperability problems resulting from the use of different authentication mechanisms, identity negotiation protocols and access control policies. Such limitations have a big impact on the user experience making it hard for user communities to port and run their scientific applications on resources aggregated from multiple providers in different organisational and national domains. INDIGO-DataCloud will provide the services and tools needed to enable a secure composition of resources from multiple providers in support of scientific applications. The core of the INDIGO Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure is the INDIGO Identity and Access Management Service (IAM), which has been designed and developed at CNAF by the middleware development group. In this contribution we give a description of the IAM service main functionalities and describe the problems it solves.
