IDM-08: Login to a locally installed application with SSH/X.509 key
|Effort and Costs:||
Use case IDM-08 describes a user authentication with an application using an SSH key or an X.509 certificate that has previously been registered with XSEDE and obtaining an OAuth2 access token that can be used with REST APIs. Since the goal is to obtain an OAuth2 token, Globus Auth (XSEDE's Web SSO service) would be the obvious choice. However, Globus Auth does not support credential extensions for SSH keys or X.509 certificates, which is required for this to work.
