Infrastructure AAA

Infrastructure AAA

Infrastructure AAA is a software component that provides a common Identity and Access Management (IAM) service interface to the EUBra-BIGSEA Infrastructure resources, independently of the underlying cloud framework (e.g. OpenStack, CloudStack, commercial frameworks).
This service corresponds to a high-level abstraction layer, mapping with and extending the native IAM features of each cloud framework to be supported by the EUBra-BIGSEA platform. It may also be considered as a horizontal/feature extension of UPV’s IM (Infrastructure Manager).

Current Users: 
Infrastructure AAA is being developed to be used in specific scope of the EUBra-BIGSEA framework. More specifically, it was designed so that application developers/providers have a single, unified authentication and authorization interface for accessing underlying cloud resources when deploying and managing their applications.

Community / market sectors: 
Big data scientists, big data software developers Business analytics software development Volume, velocity and variety Data Quality-oriented preprocessing

Specific benefits / Value Proposition: 
EUBra-BIGSEA Infrastructure AAA value is the possibility of using a common, platform-neutral interface for authentication and authorization when accessing cloud resources. It will not extend the functionalities covered by platform-dependent services (e.g. OpenStack’s keystone), but it will abstract them in a higher-level access point.

In the future, it may be made available to the community to be used in (or, most likely, adapted to) other contexts and other sectors.
