Federated login to TeraGrid

Jim Basney, Terry Fleury, Von Welch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a new federated login capability for the TeraGrid, currently the world's largest and most comprehensive distributed cyberinfrastructure for open scientific research. Federated login enables TeraGrid users to authenticate using their home organization credentials for secure access to TeraGrid high performance computers, data resources, and high-end experimental facilities. Our novel system design links TeraGrid identities with campus identities and bridges from SAML to PKI credentials to meet the requirements of the TeraGrid environment.
