Managing Privilege and Access on Federated Edge Platforms
TimeWednesday, July 3111:30am - 12pm
DescriptionThe SLATE (Services Layer at the Edge) platform supports collaborative, multi-institution scientific computing through federation of containerized edge services. This paper considers issues of trust between resource providers and developers of orchestrated services which span administrative domains. The context for discussion is the SLATE federation architecture and application deployment pattern. The major features are a custom central API server which implements the federation, partitioning of user and group applica- tions on edge clusters, and a curated catalog of applications which can be installed within the federation.
