(Requirement) Identity and access control should be interoperable across datanets
There is a general requirement / suggestion by NSF that there should be interoperability between the various DataNet projects. Rationale: It seems like identity and access control is a good place where considerable value can be demonstrated to the user community if credentials and access control rules worked across the data net projects.

ALthough I do think we want shared credentials across DataNets, that is a different issue from Single Sign On, and I'm not sure that Single Sign On should be a hard requirement. It certainly has some advantages, but it is harder to implement and requires more buy in from various software implementors. Maybe these could be separated into two requirements, one for having multiple DataNets share credentials, and the other for SSO, so they can be prioritized separately.
