The blueprint for the new official Helmholtz-wide Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (Helmholtz AAI), derived from former HDF AAI, is now online and available for services and identity providers via login.helmholtz.de and the respective development instance. It was drafted by FZJ and KIT, and is compatible to the AARC blueprint.
The establishment of such Helmholtz-wide AAI service is an organizational and technological key component to allow common access to IT services. Based on this infrastructure, cloud services, e.g. for data management, collaboration and scientific work are partially already in use as prototypes and will go into production by end of 2020. The full establishment of such federated IT infrastructure in Helmholtz will allow closer partnering to European IT and research communities such as EGI and EOSC.
