The final AARC Blueprint Architecture – a ‘community first’ approach

Software architects and technical decision makers looking for an authentication and authorisation infrastructure (AAI) solution for their research collaboration can #StartWithAARC. The final AARC Blueprint Architecture (BPA) uses a ‘community first’ approach and gives a head start in building a customised solution that supports federated access via eduGAIN.

The AARC BPA is a reference architecture that provides a set of ‘building blocks’ – key components that can be mixed and matched according to specific needs to build an AAI in a scalable and secure way. The final version of the BPA focuses on allowing the AAIs of different research- and e-infrastructures to inter-operate. This functionality is needed by research communities requiring access to resources that are offered by other infrastructure providers.
