IAM Online - Thursday, December 9, 2010

1 p.m. EST / Noon CST / 11 a.m. MST / 10 a.m. PST

Federated Access to Science Services and Infrastructures

Increasingly, virtual organizations (VOs) of scientists are collaborating across organizational boundaries, using large-scale cyberinfrastructure and hosted cloud services. For small- and medium-size VOs, the adoption burden is high to leverage such resources and enable secure access. This IAM Online will look at work being done to enable federated access to these services and infrastructures, and lower the barriers for such adoption.

Rachana Ananthakrishnan will present Globus Online, a fast, reliable and secure data movement service, hosted in the cloud, with a fire-and-forget ease of use for the scientists to manage their data transfer and sharing needs. Jim Basney will present, a service that uses federated authentication to provide certificates for access to cyberinfrastructure.

Guest Speakers

Rachana Ananthakrishnan, Principal Software Development Specialist, Argonne National Lab/University of Chicago

Jim Basney, Senior Research Scientist, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois


Tom Barton, Sr. Dir., IT Architecture and Integration, University of Chicago
