SciTokens provides open source libraries for capability-based access to services and data following the WLCG Common JWT Profiles community standard. XSEDE has committed to help evaluate the SciTokens technology (see attached letter) for use by the broad range of research communities that XSEDE supports.
At https://github.com/scitokens/ the SciTokens project has example integrations with Xrootd, CVMFS, and OpenSSH. https://github.com/htcondor/scitokens-credmon also provides an integration with HTCondor. OSG is using SciTokens for data access for some VOs.
Prior to activity launch we should identify target use cases (e.g., CVMFS data access for LIGO) and collaborators (e.g., OSG).
