|You can't miss it if you want to know more about the AARC authentication and authorisation solutions|
Over the last years there have been significant developments in the way authentication and authorisation is handled by large research collaborations.
Everybody recognises the importance of a secure and reliable infrastructure to manage users and groups they belong to, to reduce the number of credentials users need and consequently the services they can access to.
As emerged during the last years through our continuous engagement with various research communities, researchers welcome the possibility to log in once and access as many resources and services as needed regardless of the research or e-infrastructures that offers them.
Driven by the research and infrastructure needs of global collaboration, the AARC project has developed best practices and architectural models for enabling secure, scalable and interoperable authentication and authorisation solutions. These allow infrastructures to build their own AAIs without reinventing the wheel.
