Gerben Venekamp has obtained his master degree in Artificial
Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam. He then worked on
authentication and authorization within the Grid community.
Specifically, he worked on getting local accounts based on global Grid
identities, which in turn was based on X.509.
After a detour in renewable energy and autonomous agents, Gerben
returned to the field of AAI by joining SURFsara in 2015, where he works
on developing a service for enabling non-web sso.
