Architecture guidelines and recommendations open for comments

Technical architects within research and e-infrastructures and scientific communities are invited to give feedback on technical recommendations and guidelines documents produced in the Authentication and Authorisation in Research Collaborations (AARC) project. The documents will remain open for comments until the end of February.

During the past months, the Blueprint Architecture team in the AARC project has been working on a set of guidelines and recommendations targeting the adoption of federated access in international research collaborations. These recommendations and guidelines will be included in the next version of the AARC Blueprint Architecture.

At the end of January 2017, AARC held an infoshare in which the Blueprint Architecture team provided the highlights of the upcoming work. Now, the final drafts of these recommendations and guidelines are available for feedback.

AAI implementers and technical architects from research and e-infrastructures and scientific communities are asked to review these drafts and give their inputs either within the (Google) documents or via the public AARC Connect mailing list.

Please, find the Google document drafts at the following locations:

  1. Recommendations on expressing Group membership and role information
  2. Guidelines on attribute aggregation
  3. Guidelines on Token Translation Services
  4. Best practices for managing authorisation
  5. Guidelines on non web access
