Panel: Migrating to Token-Based AuthN and AuthZ

December 6, 2022, 1:40-2:30pm (MST, UTC -7:00)

Several major research and education (R&E) HPC centers and international HPC consortia are migrating from legacy authentication infrastructures to token-based authentication and authorization methods.

The Workshops on Token Based Authentication and Authorization, hosted by TAGPMA and the NSF-funded SciAuth project, have brought together several stakeholders, developers, and implementors of token-based authentication and authorization infrastructure, to present and compare their migration efforts under way, and to promote common, interoperable methods. Workshop participants were invited to present their current work in this panel, to broaden awareness of these significant changes under way in authentication, authorization and identity (AAI) infrastructure for R&E, and to encourage participation and collaboration in standards development and interoperability assurance for token-based AAI deployments.

Panelists Tom Dack (UKRI STFC, WLCG), Jim Basney (CILogon, SciAuth, SciTokens, LIGO), and Jeny Teheran (Fermilab) summarized the migration efforts in their projects to date, to present lessons learned and future plans, and to discuss best practices for interoperability. Derek Simmel (TAGPMA, PSC) chaired the panel session.
