Abstract

We introduce a new end-to-end software environment that enables experimentation with using SciTokens for capability-based authorization in scientific computing. This set of interconnected Docker containers enables science projects to gain experience with the SciTokens model prior to adoption. It is a product of our SciAuth project, which supports the adoption of the SciTokens model through community engagement, support for coordinated adoption of community standards, assistance with software integration, security analysis and threat modeling, training, and workforce development.
