Tutorial: Building the Modern Research Data Portal

Time: Sunday, September 25, 8:00AM-12:00PM EDT

Science DMZ architectures provide frictionless end-to-end network paths; and Globus APIs allow programmers to create powerful research data portals that leverage these paths for data distribution, staging, synchronization, and other useful purposes. In this tutorial, we use real-world examples to show how these new technologies can be applied to realize immediately useful capabilities.

Attendees will develop an understanding of key identity management concepts as they are applied to data management across the research lifecycle, and will be exposed to tools and techniques for implementing these concepts in their own systems.

Globus: What's New

Time: Monday, September 26, 1:30PM-2:20PM

The Globus service ( continues to evolve its web browser and REST interfaces for managing research data through its lifecycle. In the past year, Globus has added new data publication and discovery functionality, along with improvements to data transfer and sharing. Globus recently gained new identity and access management functionality that simplifies access to Globus using campus logins, and facilitates integration of Globus, XSEDE and other research services into web and mobile applications. This presentation will demonstrate these new Globus capabilities, and discuss how they can be applied on campuses across the US.

Globus Auth

Time: Tuesday, September 27, 8:00AM-8:50AM

In this talk Steve Tuecke will present an overview of Globus Auth, 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).
