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. 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 demo we are going to show how a community can use eduTEAMS to create and manage its own Community AAI following the AARC Blueprint Architecture, how users can register once and access services based on their community identity leveraging eduGAIN and how the eduTEAMS platform can help service providers reduce the complexity entailed in implementing federated access.
