The Policy and Best Practice Harmonisation activity works on operational and security aspects and policies to complement the technical research work carried out in the architecture and pilot work packages, and delivers a set of recommendations and best practices to implement a scalable scaleable and cost-effective policy and operational framework for the integrated AAI. Following the Community First approach, and driven by the use cases from the AARC Pilots, the policy harmonisation task produces both generic guidelines (such as on data protection and acceptable use policy) as well as specific guidelines for communities that are implementing the Blueprint Architecture.
In AARC, we put place primary focus on a selected set of elements :
that are currently the most pressing for either communties or generic Infrastructure AAIs:
- Security Incident Response in federated environments
- Scaleable policy negotiation and Engagement and coordinationService- and Infrastructure-centric policy support, including
- e-Researcher centric policies, such as
- Support for Infrastructures and Communities with the Policy Development Kit (PDK) (jointly with NA2)
