The Identity Provider of DSM
An identity provider (IDP) is a service that provides central authentication and authorization of users through Single-Sign-On. For this the DSM has concluded deals with federations of service providers that want to use this Single-Sign-On. Doing so enforces minumum requirements on the service providers and as such guarantees a minimum of security for the usage of the login service.
Currently the DSM is associated in the following federations or is at the process on doing so:
- DFN AAI - Federation of members of the German National Research and Education Network
- eduGAIN - Worldwide federation of research and educational institutes
