Description

eduTEAMS enables communities to create their own authentication and authorisation infrastructure (Community AAI) in order to address the challenges in accessing a multiplicity of essential services and sharing resources in a secure, flexible and scalable manner. eduTEAMS provides a central point for the community to manage its user membership, to connect Identity Providers and Service Providers and to define and apply access and sharing policies as well as to integrate with wider ecosystems such as EOSC. Leveraging the ubiquitous presence of eduGAIN federated identities, eduTEAMS enables the community members to use the identities from their home organisations (HO) for authentication and identification purposes, while augmenting the information available from the HO, with community specific information, such as membership and roles within the community. As research crosses not only countries but sectors, eduTEAMS also caters for communities with users such as those from industry or citizen scientists who do not have access to eduGAIN. eduTEAMS supports an extensive set of external (non-eduGAIN) Identity Providers, such as social networks, community operated identity providers and other platforms that can provide federated user identities. In this session we are going present how we have been working with communities to enhance their IT security and user experience in using federated access. We are going to discuss how eduTEAMS can enable virtual research collaborations across a spectrum of complexity and AAI know-how to define and apply best practices and security policies for accessing and sharing resources to support the researchers's needs.

We are going to discuss how eduTEAMS can enable virtual research collaborations across a spectrum of complexity and AAI know-how to define and apply best practices and security policies for accessing and sharing resources to support the researchers's needs.
