What is eduGAIN?
eduGAIN is a service developed within the GÉANT project. eduGAIN 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) by coordinating elements of the federations’ technical infrastructure and providing a policy framework that controls this information exchange.
What advantages does eduGAIN offer for my organisation?
Opting-in for eduGAIN will allow the users of an organization to access more services. They can not only access services operated in SURFconext but also services operated worldwide. In particular, university staff members, researchers and students will be able to participate in research projects that use eduGAIN for authenticated access.
Opting-in a SURFconext service to eduGAIN allows creating access control rules not only for Dutch higher education users but other federation-users from all over the world.
