The SDSC Summer Institute is a week-long workshop held at the University of California, San Diego that focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. We are pleased to be invited to present an overview of Globus and demonstrate how the service may be used to manage research data.

We will introduce the Globus Platform-as-a-Service and describe how it may be used to deliver unique data management capabilities in your own applications. This will include an overview of common use cases such as data publication/distribution, orchestration of data flows, etc., a description of the platform architecture, and a brief overview of available platform services. We will demonstrate the Globus Transfer API using a Jupyter notebook that attendees can use as a starting point for further experimentation.

The Globus service continues to evolve the web browser and REST interfaces for managing research data through its lifecycle. Over the past 18 months, Globus has added new data publication and discovery functionality, along with improvements to data transfer and sharing. We also introduced 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.

Today we are happy to celebrate the 1-year birthday of Globus Auth, our authentication and authorization platform.

In the year since its launch, Globus Auth has supported over 52,000 users, including nearly 18,000 new users in the past year, using one of 300 identity providers (with over 1,800 more coming soon). Counting all linked identities the number rises to over 64,000 identities.

The Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series is designed to equip university and laboratory network engineers with the knowledge and training needed to build next-gen campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. We collaborate closely with ESnet, Indiana University, Internet 2, and other workshop organizers to educate research computing and netwrok professionals on running and optimizing Globus in the Science DMZ.

Vas will present a tutorial that includes the following topics:

We are deprecating the OAuth 2.0 service provided by Globus Nexus (also known as GOAuth). Authentication interfaces in Globus Nexus are deprecated and will be discontinued April 30, 2017. Globus Auth was recently added to the Globus platform and includes support for the OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocols, along with richer and more fine-grained identity and access management.

Several users have requested a native command line client to Globus services that can be installed on a local machine and used for simple scripting. We have just released a beta version of a new command line client that you can download and use with the Globus file transfer and sharing service. This is a native Python client application, and is available to all users. Documentation for this beta release is available in our Github repo. We invite you to try the new client and send any questions and feedback to support@globus.org.
