The UK National Grid Service (NGS) will be hosting three, 30 minute online seminars through February, highlighting the recent developments in the UK for accessing and managing grid resources.
The seminars are aimed at interested parties from the grid community and further afield who are interested in access management.
1st February - Shibboleth Access to Resources on the NGS – Mike Jones, NGS, University of Manchester
This talk will demonstrate how it is possible to access and use NGS resources using institutional login credentials (via the UK Access Management Federation).
It will describe how the UK's two main e-Science authentication systems are combined to form an easy to use yet robust identity management environment. It will discuss how this mechanism links together with system, project and Virtual Organisation (VO) registration procedures.
