New project - AARC TREE

Based on the successful AARC Blueprint Architecture model, AARC TREE takes the integration of research infrastructures to the next level.

Activities in the AARC TREE project to respond to the identified needs of research infrastructure operators.

Collaboration and sharing of resources is crucial for research. Authentication and Authorization Infrastructures (AAI) play a key role in enabling federated interoperable access to resources.

The AARC Technical Revision to Enhance Effectiveness (AARC TREE) project takes the successful and globally recognized Authentication and Authorization for Research Collaboration (AARC) model and its flagship deliverable, the AARC Blueprint Architecture (BPA), as a foundation to drive the next phase of research infrastructure integration: Expanding federated access management to integrate user-centric technologies, expanding access to federated data and services (authorization), consolidating existing capabilities, and avoiding fragmentation and unnecessary duplication.

SCCs participates in AARC-TREE to continue developing the Blueprint Architectures. Here we contribute to technical recommendations, as well as to policy development. Since SCC is also a core member of the IAM project of the german NFDI, we can raise the awareness of NFDI requirements in AARC, as well as feed new developments back to NFDI, in a very timely manner.
