SGW-01: Science Gateway user authentication and identity management

Executive Summary: 
A trusted application (e.g., an approved science gateway) authenticates users using a mechanism of its choice and generates or acquires credentials as needed to perform needed tasks (e.g., job execution, file transfer) on and with XSEDE resources.
User Importance Summary: 
Science gateways are an important way to broaden the reach of XSEDE's services to a larger number of researchers. Science gateways offer important services to researchers who don't have their own personal XSEDE allocations.
Target Communities and Sizes: 
Science gateway developers and operators (10 < N < 99) Science gateway users (1000 < N < 9999)
