The ASREN workshop, organised in cooperation with German Jordanian University, MAGIC Project and EUMEDCONNECT3 Project, is designed for staff of National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and Universities.
More specifically, the target audience is:
- heads of IT from NREN
- heads of IT departments from institutions
- IT administrators
- NREN IT administrators
The topics to be discussed are:
eduroam: the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
Federated Access: effective and secure management of authentication and identity information to build a trust relationship between Identity Providers (IdP) and Service Providers (SP). It devolves the responsibility for authentication to a user’s home institution, and establishes authorisation through the secure exchange of information (known as attributes) between the two parties.
eduGAIN: a service developed within the GÉANT Project that 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.
