The CYNET Identity Federation (CIF) is a platform that allows service providers from "federated" organizations(such as Universities, libraries, etc.) to grant users from other "federated" organizations access to their services, without having to manage user-IDs, usernames and associated passwords locally. A user keeps all its information at the home institution and can access services offered by the institutions participating in the federation.
General Information about the eduGAIN: The eduGAIN service interconnects identity federations around the world, simplifying access to content, services and resources for the global research and education community. eduGAIN enables the trustworthy exchange of information related to identity, authentication and authorisation (AAI).
* Helps students, researchers and educators access online services while minimising the number of accounts users and service providers have to manage - reducing costs, complexity and security risks
* gives service providers access to a larger pool of users internationally, and allows users to access resources of peer institutions or commercial or cloud services using their one trusted identity.
At the moment there are no participants to the project.
