IDM-10: Authenticate to an XSEDE identity using WS-Trust Secure Token Service

Executive Summary: 
An XSEDE user needs to authenticate to his or her XSEDE identity using an application that supports the WS-Trust Secure Token Service (WS-trust STS), such that the application can securely interact with XSEDE services on behalf of the user.
User Importance Summary: 
We need a way for the XSEDE system to identify individual human beings. If XSEDE-enabled applications leverage the same mechanism, it becomes easier for researchers to develop applications that use XSEDE and it becomes easier for researchers who use those applications to access other XSEDE resources and services. WS-Trust STS is an important mechanism for application developers.
Target Communities and Sizes:
