geant Trimming your AAI federation fit for eduGAIN… technically

In April 2011, a new era began: The interfederation service eduGAIN officially started its production operation in GÉANT 3. Sharing web resources on a pan-European scale will become easier and more efficient thanks to the federated authentication provided by eduGAIN. Furthermore, users from participating organizations get access to more web resources and content.

This presentation focuses on the technical changes and adaptations needed for becoming interfederation-ready from a federation operator’s perspective. The goal thus is to give the operators of other participant federations an overview of the problems and issues we faced while preparing our infrastructure for eduGAIN and for interfederating in general.

We would like to show how to assist and support organizations that decide to opt-in for the eduGAIN interfederation service. On their own path towards interfederation, operators from other prospect participant federations can benefit from the experiences we made.
