Identity and Attributes in GENI

Session leader

Tom Mitchell, BBN


Tues 1:00 - 2:30 pm


This meeting will seek agreement on an approach to identity and attributes in GENI.

GENI requires a way of positively identifying experimenters and granting them access to tools and resources. Current control frameworks either maintain their own database of users or explicitly outsource this task to an identity provider. In addition to identifying experimenters, GENI needs information about attributes like institutional affiliation, project role, etc.

The goal of this session is to discuss proposals and reach community consensus on a way forward for identity management and attributes in GENI.
