Globus Auth is a foundational identity and access management (IAM) platform service, used for brokering authentication and authorization interactions between end-users, identity providers, resource servers (services), and clients (including web, mobile, and desktop applications, and other services). The goal of Globus Auth is to enable an extensible, integrated ecosystem of services and clients for the research and education community. In this talk we will introduce and demonstrate Globus Auth, discuss its role as a service, and present real world examples that illustrate how it can be used to enhance clients and services including science gateways.
