This capability is currently supported by the following 2 components:
Component User facing? Component’s role in the capability
Globus Auth yes Globus Auth is the Web Single-sign-on service for XSEDE. Globus Auth provides an OpenID Connect (OIDC) interface that allows users to authenticate using any OIDC identity provider, significantly including the CILogon OIDC service, which provides OIDC mapping for many of the thousands of InCommon and EduGAIN SAML/Shibboleth identity providers.
XSEDE User Portal (XUP) yes The XSEDE User Portal (XUP) provides the ability for science gateway users to register with XSEDE. A Science Gateway developer can require gateway users to register with XSEDE before being granted access to the gateway, in which case the gateway will have access to the user's XSEDE user profile information, even if the user logs in using a non-XSEDE identity provider on subsequent visits.
