For discussion on Nov 13 2017 AEGIS call.

The AARC recommendation AARC-JRA1.4A-201710.pdf is about expressing group memberships in a standard way, particularly in SAML using the eduPersonEntitlement attribute. Seems most related to XSEDE use case GRP-09 (Synchronize an external group), under development in XCI-45.

Potential discussion topics:

  • Interop with Globus groups
  • Other protocols (OpenID Connect, SCIM, LDAP)
  • Motivating use cases
