Post date: Mar 16, 2011 6:56:47 PM

The Roadmap for Using NSF Cyberinfrastructure with InCommon, authored by Indiana University researchers, provides a "practical guide for using InCommon and Identity Federation to support NSF Science and Engineering." The document offers guides to technical development and to policy and business processes, highlights motivations for using InCommon with NSF CI, and provides references and links to additional resources. The guide to technical development discusses the use of PKI by NSF CI projects and describes how the CILogon Service provides a bridge from InCommon to PKI for both command-line and web-based cyberinfrastructure.
