Protect Your Scientific Community From Cybersecurity Threats
The goals of the Custos project are to
provide these services to a wide range of science gateway
frameworks, providing the community with an open source,
transparent, and reviewed code base for common security
operations; and to operate trustworthy security services for the
science gateway community using this software base.
Custos will enable Science Gateways to seamlessly integrate with CILogon thus enabling federated authentication with more than 3,000 identity providers.
Resource Secrets Management
Custos provides secured storage engine capabilities by integrating with Vault. Supports user and resource credential manamgenent including SSH keys.
Collaboration through groups and sharing
Custos enables Collaborations through implementation of hierarchical groups and sharing of digital artifacts between entities.
Analyze, Audit and Triage
Custos provides access to user level analytics and audit logs through an administrative portal interface.
Initial driving Use cases: Science Gateway Security
Custos software is initially being seeded by a federal grant from the US National Science Foundation to a team of developers from CILogon, Galaxy and Apache Airavata projects. Initial team comprises of science gateway clients, science gateway middleware developers, and cybersecurity experts.
