Abstract [en]

We are steadily progressing towards a world where a digital identity is required to gain entrance to a wide variety of services. From access to supercomputers and computational grids to web-services or asserting the authorship of an email, the need for secure digital identities is only growing. The process for obtaining these digital tokens must be simple yet secure for all parties involved, and it must extend to virtually all types of applications. One well tested technology, X.509 certificates, can work with most of these platforms, and the existing Identity Federations can be used to initially assert a user's identity. By using these two together, we have been built a service where a user can use the local authentication credentials combination to gain world-wide recognized X.509 credentials in a matter of minutes.
