OPERAS-P Deliverable D4.2: AAI Service Specifications
The report provides technical details about Check-In and the integration options, that serves as a guideline for OPERAS service providers for integration work.
To support a transparent and seamlessly access to the OPERAS platforms and to external sources of data, including services, compute and storage, T4.2 aims to align and integrate the platforms with the EGI Check-In service (also called EGI AAI proxy) as Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) within the OPERAS Research Infrastructure (OPERAS RI). Check-In provides an identity and access management solution that facilitates the access to services and resources using the federated authentication mechanisms. Through the EGI AAI proxy, users will be able to authenticate with the credentials provided by the Identity Providers (IdP) of their Home Organisation (e.g. via eduGAIN), as well as using social identity providers, or other selected external identity providers.
