Abstract: The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) is the world's most advanced radio telescope foreseen in the near future, designed to explore some of the biggest open questions in astronomy, like the epoch of re-ionization, the nature of gravity, the origins of cosmic magnetism, the possible life beyond the Earth, the galaxy evolution, cosmology and dark energy. One of the most challenging effort in the SKA era will be the massive and unseen huge amount of data and computational resources requested to reach the scientific discoveries. Strong interaction with the astronomical community is foreseen through the web access to data. One of the most relevant topics in this scope is the user accessibility to the acquired data, particularly in the scope of user and digital identity recognition. Several technologies are available nowadays and a study and a prototyping work have done inside one of the SKA consortia (Telescope Manager - TM) to investigate different requirements, aspects, constrains and solutions required by the project. An overview of the investigations is exposed and some architectural and implementation solutions described.
