The ELIXIR Human Data Use Case together with the Compute Platform (ELIXIR AAI) will present a solution to enforce access to sensitive datasets in a distributed environment (for instance, the IaaS clouds). The ELIXIR Sensitive human data user community has scenarios where researchers’ permissions to access datasets are managed in a central database (like EGA) but their access control needs to be enforced in a distributed environment (e.g. IaaS clouds provided by different ELIXIR Nodes). EXCELERATE WP9 together with the ELIXIR AAI Task has developed a standards (OAuth2) based architecture to meet this requirement.
In the webinar, Mikael Linden (ELIXIR AAI co-chair) and Juha Törnroos (EXCELERATE WP9) will present the ELIXIR AAI Permissions API and demonstrate how it is used to manage access to EGA dataset replica in the ELIXIR Finland cloud.
