A recording of the AARC Blueprint Architecture webinar that took place on 18 April is now online. The video, aimed at Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) architects and technical decision makers for research collaborations, can be found on the IAM Online YouTube channel and the slides with notes are available.
In the webinar video, Nicolas Liampotis (GRNET) and David Hübner (DAASI International) explained the final version of the BluePrint Architecture (BPA) that was developed within the AARC (Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration) project. Around 30 people joined the live event.
What is the BPA?
The AARC BPA defines the key components that are needed for a research collaboration to build an AAI in a scalable and secure way, so that researchers can access the resources they need based on their role within the collaboration. These building blocks can be mixed and matched according to specific needs, so software architects and technical decision makers can build a customised solution for their research collaboration.
