Notes

  •  In the past, SURFconext used to send the home organization in the attribute urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15, which was incorrect.  Since 2013, the correct oid urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.2.9 is in use.  For reasons of compatibility, the old (wrong) key is still sent.  It should not will be used removed in new implementations2020.
  • Matching values against this attribute should be case-insensitive, i.e. the values "uniharderwijk.nl" and "UniHarderwijk.nl" should be considered equal. For Interoperability reasons however we require lower-case values as specified above in SURFconext.
  • It is desirable to have the same value for all your users.
  • SURFconext will store the allowed value for your institution in our configuration so we can check that no illegal values are being sent.
