Institution joining a federation as IdP

The process for an institution to join a national identity federation in each country as an IdP may go beyond what we want to ask NGIs. It may be sufficient to ask if the relevant institutions are already members: if not, we can see there is a problem. --Ocalladw 17:34, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Institution providing access to TCS for their users

[1] explains the requirements. In short a subscriber (i.e. a university or other research inst.) must sign a subscriber agreement with a member (i.e. an NREN) (TO BE COMPLETED...) --Ocalladw 17:34, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Good point. I split the question and added a pointer to the TCS document repository --Leinen 16:44, 22 December 2011 (UTC)


"a catch-all IdP to register users from not-federated institutions" While this is generally a common practice in federations I don't think this is compatible with TCS e-Science. I think IdP's must be linked to primary, institutional identity databases, and specifically the face-to-face identity vetting cannot be out-sourced. At least this was our understanding in Ireland. --Ocalladw 14:50, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
