Security Considerations

Users are required to have a GitHub account and must be whitelisted by OSG Technology group staff in order to request changes in the public repository. Changes to registration are reviewed and applied by OSG staff. Only a limited number of OSG Technology staff members have read and write access to the private contact repository.

Data exported by topology web service publicly readable, but x509 certificate is required to view private contact details (email, phone).
