VAMPIRE - Virtual organisation Authorisation Management Practices in Research and Education The GÉANT project in essence is a virtual organisation (VO), whose participants are spread across different organisations at different geographical locations and need access to common services. In the past, to access those services GÉANT project participants had to remember different sets of credentials. Thanks to federated identity, participants can now login to most of these services using the credentials issued by their home organisation. This addresses the authentication issues very well but narrates only half of the story; the term Identity management is incomplete without proper authorisation management. This presentation will focus on the authorisation management practices for the GÉANT VO to highlight the various authorisation aspects in such an environment.
