OAuth in the Agave Platform

Date and Time: 
2014 April 8th @ 3:15pm
CG1 Auditorium
Joe Stubbs

The OAuth specification provides a powerful and secure framework for delegating access to sensitive data and resources over the web. Version 2 was published in October of 2012 and has seen wide adoption from industry leaders like Google, Facebook and Twitter. In this talk we will present an overview of OAuth 2 and its uses. We'll then discuss how we built support for OAuth2 into Agave, our 'science as a service' platform. In concert with other technologies like MyProxy and GSI security, we'll show how OAuth and Agave can significantly simplify the challenges of bringing HPC to the web.
