eduGAIN – IUCC Identity Federation

The IUCC Identity Federation joins Israeli institutions in academia and research in unified federation so that they can share services and identities. Federation members can then seamlessly connect to a global network of REFEDs (Research & Education Federations) via GEANT’s eduGAIN service and connect more efficiently with their colleagues around the world via a pan-European Web Single Sign On (Web SSO) configuration. By being a part of the IUCC Israel Identity Federation users ensure the trustworthy exchange of information related to identity, authentication and authorization between Federation partners gaining access to important services provided by Federations and associated partners.

By connecting to this global network of REFEDs (Research & Education Federations), local IIF members can seamlessly connect and collaborate with colleagues across the globe via a pan-European Web Single Sign On (Web SSO). Being a part of the IUCC Israel Identity Federation ensures users trustworthy and secure identity, authentication and authorization, locally and in collaboration with partners around the world.

Simplified registration
The IIF simplifies administration. Institutions are responsible only for their own users’ accounts. All that is needed is a single, one-time, internal registration.

Unique login
Users receive a unique login ID from their institution. This login ID offers quick and easy access to all the different web applications and services provided by IIF and its service providers. Users do not need to keep track of multiple user names and passwords for all the services they wish to use.

High availability
Users can not only use the service while at home, but also when travelling or visiting another federated institution.

More efficient service
As a member of IIF, institutions can reach a larger academic audience with more services, and users enjoy a more diverse service portfolio.
