CILogon project launches

CILogon project launches

Von Welch, Randy Butler, and Jim Basney of NCSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate receive a three year $1,750,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to integrate, deploy, and support an open-source, standards-based cyberinfrastructure logon (CILogon) service, providing the NSF research community with credentials for secure access to cyberinfrastructure. The service bridges the identity credentials generated by the nation’s universities, through the InCommon Federation, to a credential that will satisfy the authentication and authorization needs of NSF’s cyberinfrastructure projects.

The project also supports the GridShib, GSI-OpenSSH, and MyProxy projects.
