21 Official Identity Federations supported by GISELA Science Gateway 21 To be created on November 2012 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

22 Training Material to create Federated Identity Services Virtual Appliances included 22 Especially developed in the context of GISELA GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

23 23 Creation of Federated Identity Services in LA IdF Mexico (managed by UNAM) –Done in cooperation between GISELA and EPIKH –2 persons came to Catania in July 2012 to learn and install the services –By end of November 2012, the Mexican federation will comprise:  UNAM  Universidad de Colima (UCOL)  Dirección General de Institutos Tecnológicos (DGIT)  CUDI ... for a total of about 500,000 students and researchers ! Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama –A training event to create federated identity services will take place in Bucaramanga on November (fully paid by RENATA  a nice example of sustainability and commitment) Future: –INFN will continue to assist and support LA countries to create federated identity services until the ELCIRA project will take over (ELCIRA started on the 1 st of June 2012) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

24 eduGAIN (www.edugain.org) 24 GISELA Science Gateway is also registered as Service Provider of eduGAIN GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

25 The Grid IDentity Pool (GrIDP) (http://gridp.ct.infn.it) This is an “open” Identity Federation 25 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

26 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 The Grid IDentity Pool (GrIDP) (http://gridp.ct.infn.it) 26 While Identity Federation are being established in LA, single users as well as Identity Providers are welcome to join GrIDP to access and use the GISELA Science Gateway

27 First set of considerations – Interoperability Interoperability is a property referring to the ability of diverse systems and organizations to work together (inter- operate). The term is often used in a technical systems engineering sense, or alternatively in a broad sense, taking into account social, political, and organizational factors that impact system to system performance; According to ISO/IEC (Information Technology Vocabulary, Fundamental Terms), interoperability is "The capability to communicate, execute programs, or transfer data among various functional units in a manner that requires the user to have little or no knowledge of the unique characteristics of those units". 27 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

29 The CHAIN Worldwide Interoperability Demo 29 GISELA contributions (WP3, 4 & 6) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

30 e-Infrastructures can be made interoperable at user/application level using standards 2.Both general purpose and VRC-specific applications can be submitted from anywhere and run everywhere The demo “in action” GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

31 31 The demo “in action” 1.The GISELA Science Gateway is completely «agnostic» w.r.t. the middleware deployed in LA 2.No more technical (and political) barriers for a much wider adoption of the e-Infrastructure paradigm GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

32 Second set of considerations – Social Networks About 1 billion people have accounts on the existing Social Networks (many of the researchers we are targeting with e-Infrastructures are among them) Web-based social networking accounts for more than 10-15% of the total time spent online in the whole world Social Networks’ are by far the most used (liked) virtual environments in the world 32 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

33 “Social” Science Gateways ( 33 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

34 GISELA “social” Science Gateway (The Science Gateway as a Facebook app) 34 SSO possible through the Social Networks’ Bridge IdP GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

35 Third set of considerations – Mobile Access 35 More than 25% of mobile phones in the world are smartphones and the number of people connected through mobile appliances increases every year Social networking amounts to 91% of mobile internet access, compared to 79% on desktops, and it is expected that by 2014 mobile internet should take over desktop internet usage (*) So, mobile access to “everything” is not any more an option; it is a must and e-Infrastructures shouldn’t/won’t be an exception (*) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

36 The “mobile” Authentication Procedure (REST API access to the GISELA Science Gateway) 36 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

37 Big challenges are in front of us… Now that many users can potentially access and use the GISELA Science Gateway, a new training and communication strategy is needed as well as a portfolio of appealing applications to attract them How all this is feasible and sustainable in the future the least possible cost ? 37 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

38 The Science Gateway market place Users/VRCs SG Dev. GISELA Science Gateway GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

41 GISELA Science Gateway developers task force Composition: –Argentina: 1 –Brazil: 1 –Colombia: 9 –Ecuador: 2 –Italy: ~10 –Mexico: 6 –Spain: 2 –Uruguay: 1 –Venezuela: 7 A tutorial for developers will take place in Bucaramanga (Colombia) on November (fully paid by RENATA  a nice example of sustainability and commitment) 41 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

42 Uptake of «Catania» Science Gateways 184 Organisations from 43 Countries GISELA Science Gateway figures: 174 users ( ~ 700% increase since Dec 2011; about twice the current number of members of the VO and steadily increasing) 75 Organisations 18 countries 42 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

43 Summary and conclusions (1/2) GISELA legacy builds on four pillars: standard adoption, simplicity, easiness of use and re-usability e-Infrastructures can be very useful platforms for many VRCs, provided that they are really easy to use and GISELA has demonstrated that this is not only feasible but also sustainable The federated identity based AAI services promoted/fostered/ established by GISELA will bring Latin American countries to the state of the art and will help CLARA and the NRENs in creating new services across the whole continent, shared with Europe and other regions of the world The GISELA Science Gateway, with its support for Identity Federations, Social Networks, and mobile access is changing the way the LA Grid infrastructure is used, hugely widening its potential user base, especially non-IT experts and the “citizen scientist”, yet keeping the required level of security The adoption of standards (JSR 286, SAGA, SAML, etc.) was a concrete investment towards sustainability and allowed worldwide interoperability at user application level and re-usability of applications at the Science Gateway level 43 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012

44 Summary and conclusions (2/2) “We now have clear ideas and goals, the (standard- based) tools and a roadmap to achieve them, and the strength of choices largely shared and supported by other projects” (from GISELA 2 nd review, 8/12/2011) In the last 10 months ideas were turned into reality and all goals have been achieved but… …we have done much more than this: we now have a vision for the future of e-Infrastructure in Latin America which is shared and financially sustained by the most important stakeholders in the region (i.e., CLARA and the NRENs) 44 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012
