M5.19a CSSO Security Infrastructure fully functional

The general objective of the activity covers the design of a security infrastructure for the platform and the introduction of a secure Single Sign-On service (SSO) for the platform. The task to be achieved within the third JPA concerns the integration of a Community Single Sign-On (CSSO) security infrastructure within the platform.

The CSSO enables the various EDIT service providers to protect their services and resources defining individual access control policies, while users can access different services using only one identity. The security infrastructure bases on the Shibboleth SSO framework which relies on the SAML protocol family. In particular, Shibboleth and SAML provide a federation concept to realise the community aspect.

This milestone reports on the enhancements achieved in comparison to component C5.83, the initial CSSO security infrastructure setup.
