OCC Joins the UK Federation

The Open Cloud Consortium is pleased to announce membership in the UK Federation.   This allows researchers from participating UK Organizations to gain authenticated access to the Open Science Data Cloud.    The UK federation uses the standards based Shibboleth software to facilitate the sharing of web resources that are subject to access control.

If your institution is an Identity Provider (IdP) associated with the UK Federation, but is not listed in the OSDC apply page, please contact us at and we’ll work with you to get your organization to release the appropriate attributes.
