Federated Authentication and Authorization service RUNNetAAI
The Identity Federation is a single information environment that unites participants on the basis of the Single Sign On technology infrastructure (SSO).
This technology assumes that the user is always authorized on the servers of his Home organization. Source records of users may serve different databases of the university: the database of users of domain controllers (databases, LDAP), the base administration of the university (personnel department, student accounting system), etc. In some cases, for the introduction of federal authorization in a university, they may need a thorough audit of the system for storing and processing user credentials, and then implementing software and hardware processing of credentials and protected personal data.
