The EOSC Architecture Working Group, has released the final report on the EOSC Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI), produced by the EOSC AAI Task Force.
This release marks the culmination of the work of the task force, established in October 2019 with the objective of defining a common global ecosystem for identity and access control infrastructures for the EOSC.
In order to outline a globally viable, scalable and secure EOSC AAI, the group defined the following three core principles, on which to base their work:
- User experience is the only touchstone.
- All trust flows from communities.
- There is no centre in a distributed system
