Abstract: Users access the NGS using personal certificates from a trusted CA. The central role of the NGS makes it desirable that users can use their institutional id for access. A Shibboleth infrastructure is being deployed to access common resources so it is natural to develop Shibboleth access to the Grid and the NGS. We have developed a prototype to give users Shibboleth access to the grid. The NGS portal was taken and key components developed enabling the capabilities of Shibboleth and the certificate based authentication to be provided through a user-friendly interface using certificate management tools, pluggable security modules for the translation of attributes, and portlets to manage user’s Shibboleth based low assurance certificate.
