CILogon 2.0 - An Integrated Identity and Access Management Platform for Science

We are pleased to announce that the CILogon 2.0 project officially launched on January 1, 2016. The project integrates and expands on the existing open source CILogon and COmanage software to provide an integrated identity and access management (IAM) platform for cyberinfrastructure. The platform combines the federated identity management capabilities of CILogon with the collaborative organization management capabilities of COmanage, with an emphasis on supporting international research collaborations via eduGAIN. The 3 year project, funded by NSF award number 1547268, is a collaboration between NCSA and Spherical Cow Group.

The project team recently met at NCSA for our project kick-off meeting:

As illustrated in the design diagram below, the CILogon 2.0 platform will integrate multiple identity sources (InCommon, eduGAIN, Google, ORCID) and support multiple IAM interfaces for science applications (X.509 certificates, OpenID Connect claims, SAML assertions, LDAP attributes).

Please stay tuned to CILogon News for project updates and contact with any questions.
