The value of face-to-face workshops was proven again when representatives from research communities worked with AARC project experts on authentication and authorisation infrastructures (AAI) in a project ‘plugfest’. Insights were gained into their use cases and requirements, and an assessment was made of which components need to be deployed. Following the success of the first […]
