We believe that distributed, scientific computing community has unique authorization needs that can be met by utilizing common web technologies, such as OAuth 2.0 and JSON Web Tokens (JWT). The SciTokens team, a collaboration between technology providers including the HTCondor Project and domain scientists, is working to build and demonstrate a new authorization approach at scale.
