Europe Latin America Collaborative e ‑ Infrastructure for Research Activities A Model for Federated Services Brook Schofield, TERENA ● Sofia, Bulgaria ● 20 th June 2014
Worldwide eduroam status… eduroam in production eduroam pilot Missing eduroam
Overview Partners CLARA, GARR, RNP, TERENA, RedIRIS Focus: – Promoting and consolidating the foundations for creating a framework for authentication and authorization in Latin America, and facilitate the integration with the European initiatives under TERENA activities such as TF-EMC2 and REFEDS, and will make the necessary arrangements to join the GÉANT service eduGAIN
eduroam in Latin America Before the Project 1 production deployments – Brazil, Peru Zero pilot deployments
eduroam in Latin America Year 1 of the Project 3 production deployments – Brazil, Peru, Chile 9 pilot deployments – Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Venezuela
eduroam in Latin America Current progress… 8 production deployments – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru 4 pilot deployments – El Salvador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Venezuela 6 Missing – Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Guyana
Federation Development Campus Username/Password Store for AuthN IdP Expose Campus IdM via SAML/RADIUS Federation Aggregates IdPs & SPs; Builds Trust Inter- Federation Aggregates Federations
Key steps eduroam at TICAL 2012 – Regional Conference, Assess who has eduroam and who uses it – Repeat at TICAL 2013 and TICAL 2014 Offer services via federated access/eduGAIN – FileSender, Video Conference Portal, RedCLARA Portal Collaboration with GÉANT

Problems and Concerns Policy often more difficult then technical issues - Chile was 1 st world wide to adopt Policy Template from GÉANT/REFEDS; Different models of sustainability in the NRENs in Latin America; Few technical people involved in the project; NREN commitment/focus in setting up eduroam infrastructure ahead of AAI.
* MATE (Argentina) MATE run by INNOVA|RED Marco para el Acceso a la Tecnología y la Educación (MATE) Model for Access to Technology and Education (MATE) Started operation in late 2013 Joined eduGAIN in early-2014 ;-) *This is NOT their logo (nor their name)!!
What to focus on? Federating your campus systems – Talk to your researchers, staff & students Investigate key services – Intranet and Website – Webmail Google Apps for Education, Microsoft 365 – e-Learning – Moodle – Talk to your librarian about Journal Access – Find your own “killer app”.
simpleSAMLphp – PHP – Multi-lingual support Shibboleth – IdP is Java, SP is C/mod_shib – Runs within Apache Tomcat PySAML2 – Python Many plug-ins or modules available for common tools. Benefits are greater than using LDAP. More that one choice is good…
Technology == Pilot NREN as Federation Operator – “Routing” – Discovery Campus, Content Providers, Research Infrastructures – Shibboleth – simpleSAMLphp – PySAML – ADFS
What to NOT focus on? Policy over business case/justification – What’s important for your campus’ Waiting until … – your federation in “production” or in eduGAIN – …a “killer app” is found. “Other” or Future Federation Technologies – OpenID Connect + OAuth are being explored. – Hub&Spoke gateways already exist.
Identity Federations World Wide 31 Production Federations 17 Pilot Federations Last update May 2014
eduroam – roam across borders 26 eduroam Pilot :-(
eduGAIN & Federations 24 eduGAIN Members 7 Joining eduGAIN 0 Candidate Federation 16 Other Federations 15 April 2014
Next steps… Deploy eduroam Use it at TICAL2015 Pick a campus federation technology & Deploy an IdP – PySAML2, simpleSAMLphp, Shibboleth – FreeRADIUS, Microsoft NPS, other… Connect with your NREN/Fed Operator Connect with the community – Country, EAP/CEENet, Europe and Globally Federate your services
