Identity Providers & Federations:

  • ( Integration Ongoing ) The eduGAIN service is intended to enable the trustworthy exchange of information related to identity, authentication and authorisation between the GÉANT (GN3) Partners' federations. The eduGAIN service will deliver this through co-ordinating elements of the federations' technical infrastructure and a policy framework controlling the exchange of this information.  The initial goal is to enable Pan-European Web Single Sign On (Web SSO) to both GÉANT services and to those provided by other communities represented by, or associated with, the GN3 Partners.

Standards & Technologies:

  • The  Central Authentication Service  (CAS) is a  single sign-on  protocol for the  web . Its purpose is to permit a user to access multiple applications while providing their credentials (such as userid and password) only once. It also allows web applications to authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security credentials, such as a password. The name  CAS  also refers to a software package that implements this protocol. Although Liferay offers a sophisticated programming interface for developers, no programming skills are required for basic website installation and administration.
