The eXtreme Scale Identity Management (XSIM) effort is seeking to capture the trust relationships between both large and small scientific collaborations and their resource providers so as to understand the evolution leading to the existing environment. Based on analysis of interviews with representatives from Virtual Organizations and Resource Providers, XSIM will later be proposing a model for the next evolutionary step in identity management that preserves the core trust relationships between HEP collaborations and resource providers. The presentation will describe the results of interviews to this point and ask for additional volunteers to add information and perspectives to our analysis base.
