Proposed agenda item from Mischa

Brief background: There have been different, independent calls for
unifying some or all of the profiles. I think BrianB brought this up a
while ago that we might unify WLCG and SciTokens. Recently we had Paul's .
Meanwhile the AARC community WG is discussing how the format of e.g. the
groups could be changed such that it would be acceptable for WLCG and
still be interoperable. Another concern that has been raised, for
example, is by site admins who have serious worries about having to
support different profiles while even a single one can be challenging.
The plan for a single profile was also discussed in the AEGIS call last

I personally hope and really think we should be able to get everyone to
agree on a single Grand Unified Token Profile and I think this would be
a really massive improvement for both resource and software providers.

  • AARC is considering changing the format of the groups already (so it would be more compatible with WLCG)
  • General consensus that merging would be good (discussed in AEGIS)
  • Profiles: AARC/EGI, WLCG, SciTokens (minor differences between WLCG and SciTokens)
  • Generally we probably have enough overlap with AARC and AEGIS (although last call was fairly empty)
  • TIIME meeting planned in Jan - we should make some progress on the mailing list beforehand 
  • app-int mailing list might be an appropriate place, but can also make a new one
  • REFEDS is an option, but not necessarily very pro-oidc
  • OIDF also an option
  • Mischa will discuss further at upcoming HTCondor week 
There are minutes attached to this event. Show them.
