What is eduGAIN?

eduGAIN interconnects identity federations around the world (interfederation), thus 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) by coordinating elements of the federations’ technical infrastructure and providing a policy framework that controls this information exchange. eduGAIN is a service developed within the GÉANT project.
