Dear colleagues,

We have recently formed a WLCG working group on federation operations security (including SLATE), which has the Charter:

"The main challenge to be addressed is to document a trust model for centralized service orchestration capability across WLCG centers (“federated operations”) to enable efficient operation of WLCG computing services and innovation of new platforms in support of HL-LHC software development. This Working Group aims to clearly articulate entities and processes which implement such capabilities. The methods and trust relationships will be described in documents (both existing and to be written) such as service level agreements and security policy documents, including security incident response and traceability. The trust model enables delegation of the service operator responsibility by the resource provider."

To that end we are conducting a survey of WLCG Site contacts, GDB members, and operations teams to collect your perspectives on trust & security regarding federated operation of services across the WLCG infrastructure. 

The input collected here will inform the activities of the WLCG Federation Operations Security working group (c.f., and the results will be presented at an upcoming GDB meeting.

You are invited to fill in the questionnaire below before Monday, February 10, 2020: 

Your input is greatly appreciated.
