Login portlet with INDIGO AAI authentication

If a user clicks on INDIGO AAI a pop-up window is created with the IAM login page. After the login the pop-up page is automatically closed and the user is authenticated in the portal.

When a new user try to access the portal, he/she has to provide the consensus to release the tokens to the Liferay based portal. This request is performed twice: once for the access token and the other for the refresh token. Following authentications will not require the user consensus. This will be requested again if different scopes are requested.
