eduGAIN – Are we there yet? Lukas Hämmerle (ghost writer, Brook Schofield) FIM4R, Helsinki – 2 October 2013
2 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate All About eduGAIN… Global Authentication INfrastructure Web site: SAML2-based ("All roads lead to SAML2") Currently mostly web-based services but non-web services are supported too (e.g. via SAML ECP) An interfederation service primarily for Research & Education Connects existing SAML-based academic identity federations Developed and funded by European GÉANT projects But open also to non-European federations Complaints/comments or
3 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate What is eduGAIN? eduGAIN provides policy framework and standards to build trust SPs and IdPs of participating federations should opt-in for eduGAIN MDS fetches, aggregates and republishes metadata
4 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate Full Mesh Federation ~80% of all NREN Federations (June 2013) E.g InCommon UKAMF SWAMID HAKA AAF SWITCHaai...
5 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate Hub-and-Spoke Federation with Distributed Login ~15% of all NREN Federations (June 2013) SURFconext WAYF.dk SIR TAAT Confia
6 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate Hub-and-Spoke Federation with Central Login ~5% of all NREN Federations (June 2013) FEIDE
7 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate The More "Realistic" Architecture
8 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate eduGAIN Video Search "benefit from edugain" on youtube.com
9 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate Some Statistics April 2011: Official start of eduGAIN Now: 19 Federations (now also including UK), 6 joining Current Entities: 143 IdPs, 73 SPs One IdP can stand for dozens of organisations depending on federation architecture Whole (academic) SAML landscape: 43 Federations, 2390 IdPs, 4654 SPs (gathered from metadata) Not all of them need to be interfederated, e.g. many internal SPs
12 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate Bridging the gab between Fed + Inter-Fed The team is working on improving these stats: Policy & Code of Conduct (Mikael Linden, CSC) Operational Team (Tomasz Wolniewicz, UMK) Emerging Federations (Brook Schofield/Nadia Sluer, TERENA) Project Moonshot Pilot (John Chapman,JANET ) FaaS Study (Marina Vermezovic,AMRES/Valter Nordh, SWAMID) Engaging User Communities (Lukas Hämmerle, SWITCH) …all complementary GÉANT tasks to support the community. We’re VAMP, FIM4R & REFEDS Listening to your suggestions and feeling the fire
13 Connect | Communicate | Collaborate What will we continue to do? Investigate and pilot solutions supporting Data Protection Ensure we don’t run out of customers (by building more federations) Too successful at the moment Convert the success in building federations eduGAIN participation Engage with the Research Infrastructure community Continue to listen… …and learn.
