1 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 1 e-Infrastructure Programme James Farnhill e-Research Programme Manager e-Infrastructure Security Development Plans

2 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 2 Introduction and Agenda Introduction to e-Infrastructure programme; Introduction to e-Infrastructure Security theme; Main call areas for e-Infrastructure Security theme: –Identity Management and Levels of Assurance –Developing and enhancing federated tools and services –Virtual Organisation Management Tools and Services Accounting and usage ITT and call; Questions.

3 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 3 Vision The £10 million e-Infrastructure programme is primarily concerned with consolidating and building on work to establish an e-infrastructure undertaken with other partners during the initial five-year investment in the UK e-science programme. e-Infrastructure embraces networks, security, grids, data centres, specialist services and collaborative environments, and can include supporting operations centres, service registries, single sign-on, certificate authorities, training and community support services. The range of e-Infrastructure developments is already maturing: grid computing is now typically used as a basis for the computation and data management required by collaborative research, and JISC investments such as in virtual research environments and Shibboleth are presently being adopted.

6 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 6 Introduction to e-Infrastructure Security One of the four themes of e-Infrastructure; Split into three areas: –Identity management and levels of assurance (IM & LOA) –Developing and enhancing federated tools and services –Virtual Organisation authorisation and management tools and services Part of the ongoing work by JISC on security and access management; Builds on the existing work in Core Middleware; Links with the Transition to Federation programme;

7 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 7 Inputs to programme Community consultation with a range of national and international experts, which is ongoing and includes meetings such as this one; Some of the items from the recent core middleware wishlist that can be accommodated within the programme; Direction from the JISC Committee for Support of Research; OST AAA working group;

8 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 8 Background to IM and LOA Trust amongst members of a federation requires robust identity management to be in place; Different resources require different levels of assurance of a user to be able to access them; Therefore need to gain consensus on: –Equivalence of IM practices, processes and technologies –How different LOA are created and assigned to resources Increased use of virtual organisations by researchers to collaborate could change IM and LOA in institutions;

9 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 9 IM & LoA - Aims of the Call, Timescales and Funding Help establish consolidation and consensus amongst the community on existing practice in the areas of identity management and level of assurance (phase 1); Develop solutions to resolve gaps/issues (phase 2); Two year duration with potential for six month extension –Phase one over one year –Phase two over one year Call already issued and being marked; Projects scheduled to start in September; £650,000 total budget: –£400,000 over the four areas in the first phase –£250,000 in second phase

10 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 10 IM & LoA - Call Areas First Phase: –Identity Management within Institutions –Identity Management across Institutional Boundaries –Defining Level of Assurance –Appropriate Level of Assurance Second Phase: –Closed call for gaps/issues identified in first phase

11 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 11 Developing and enhancing federated tools and services Call for projects in September for £900,000; Projects planned to start in January 2007 and finish December 2008; Aims to support piloting and the wider adoption of an integrated Grid/Shibboleth approach to identity and access management through: –Delegation within n-tier Web Service architectures –Development and initial rollout of a Virtual Home for Identities

12 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 12 Virtual Organisation Management Tools and Services Call for projects in September for £525,000; Projects planned to start in January 2007 and finish December 2008; Aims to ensure that appropriate authorisation services and related infrastructure are in place to support higher level tools for the construction and management of VOs; Works in collaboration with the semantic models package, which is seeking to automate the VO set up processes.

13 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 13 Accounting and Usage Comes under the Grid Services and Tools theme; Reviewing existing models of accounting and usage as a first stage (£100K); Acting on recommendations from first stage in second stage (£300K); Potentially interesting area for security as traditionally closely tied in with AAI;

14 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 14 Other Considerations Contribute to the e-Framework for Research and Education –Reference models –Services that are not already included Support for JISC dissemination activities Availability of software and information to the community

15 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | | Slide 15 Questions Questions and answers
