Issues Remaining: 
  • XSEDE does not currently have a standard way for SPs to maintain users' data access without also maintaining other kinds of access (e.g. SSH).  Every SP must figure something out on their own. XSEDE should propose a way to do this that SPs can use as a guide.
  • XSEDE does not currently have a way for SPs to publish their data access grace period so that it can be included in user documentation.
  • XSEDE's authentication service used by Globus for file transfers, OA4MP, currently does not allow users to obtain X.509 certificates after their allocation expires. Without a certificate, users are not able to activate (authenticate to) SP XSEDE endpoints.
This capability is currently supported by the following 5 components:
