Authentication and Authorisation services in EGI - Overview and use cases
- Valeria Ardizzone (EGI.eu)
This session provides an overview of the Check-in security service of EGI that enables users to login and be authorised on different services across EGI, and even beyond the EGI federation.
Check-in is operated by GRNET for the EGI community and its partners as a central hub to connect federated Identity Providers (IdPs) with service providers (SPs). Check-in allows users to login to services using their preferred IdPs (either institutional or social) in a uniform and easy way. Check-in is connected to all the EGI services, and also used as an authentication-authorisation system in the European Open Science Cloud.
During this session we will introduce Check-in and its technical components. We will present various options on how Check-in can support research communities. We will also feature a few research communities who will report on their experiences in using Check-in to enable their research workflows in distributed environments.
The session is of introductory level aiming to serve new communities who want to engage with, and use the EGI Check-in service.
