Exploring, documenting and making recommendations on FutureGrid identity management infrastructure and methods.

Intellectual Merit

Identity management for cyberinfrastucture serving distributed user communities is a evolving art. Understanding and surveying current best practices are needed to advance the state of the art.

Broader Impacts

Better understanding and documenting best practices for CI identity management will help new CI project more quickly and security come online.

Scale of Use

I don't expect to actually use significant resources.
