GENI requires an authorization solution that will allow architectural components (Clearinghouse, Aggregates) to determine the privileges of an experimenter. Experimenters can be granted privileges based on institutional affiliation, project role or membership attributes, for instance. Aggregates are expected to have local policies regarding resource access and use. In this session, ISI will report out on their effort to implement ABAC authorization within ProtoGENI. Then the group will discuss next steps in evaluating ABAC authorization in comparison to the current GENI credentials.
