The Dataverse Authentication and Authorization Community Group (“Auth” for short) reports on the state and future of authentication and authorization in installations of Dataverse to the Dataverse Advisory Team. It is coordinated by Philip Durbin and Ben Companjen.
The Dataverse Community Google Group is a fine place to discuss anything related to auth, but auth often also comes up in the #dataverse channel on freenode since both coordinators are regulars (going by “pdurbin” and “bencomp”). Please feel free to join at http://chat.dataverse.org but rest assured that significant announcements regarding auth will be made via the Google Group.
For now, the Dataverse Authentication and Authorization Community Group Google Doc is being used as a place to centralize lists of auth projects, interests and meeting notes. Comments are welcome! Feel free to request “edit” access!
