    Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory (BioVeL): Athentication & Authorisation Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory (BioVeL): Athentication & Authorisation Presentation Transcript

    • Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory: Authentication & Authorization Project Overview BioVeL is an e-laboratory that supports research on biodiversity using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary sources.
    • Why Authentication & Authorization? • Accounting – Who is using which service • Resource Limitation – e.g. only one metagenomics workflow execution at a time
    • Authentication: User login • Standard login • Google • Facebook • Twitter • Generic OpenID
    • Authentication: Web Service • OAuth – Dot.com support • Google, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. • Widely used • Higher likelihood to find experienced developer
    • OAuth: Secured Workflow • Slice of secured metagenomics workflow:
    • Open Source Solution • Role based data model • Modules – Security API (access to data model) – Security Filter – Application Manager – User and Rights Management • Documentation: • https://colab.mpi-bremen.de/wiki/display/microb3 • Source code: • https://colab.mpi-bremen.de/micro-b3/svn/megx.net/trunk/ https://colab.mpi-bremen.de/wiki/x/uQAp
    • Summary • Keep it simple – Authentication & Authorization solutions are use case specific • Re-use and fit existing solutions • OAuth – Widely used – Solves Web Service based Authentication – Works nicely with Taverna 
