AARC has influenced the integration of the OpenAIRE AAI with the EOSC-hub AAI.
The following article was originally posted by Ilaria Fava on the OpenAIRE website and was published here in 19 November 2018.
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aims to provide an Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI). The EOSC-hub and the OpenAIRE-Advance projects’ AAIs build on existing AAI services and provide a consistent, interoperable system with which communities can integrate. This way, the communities can gain seamless access to services and resources across disciplinary, social and geographical borders.
The EOSC-hub and the OpenAIRE AAIs have been and continue to be shaped by the recommendations from the AARC project and other relevant alignments that facilitate the use of eduGAIN and federated access for research and thematic services.
