F-ticks statistics (pilot)
This site reports the statistics of authentication sessions performed within eduGAIN.
Gathering information on the authentication traffic between Identity Providers (IdP) and Service Providers (SP) is a relevant action to be able to understand the identity patterns within eduGAIN and the role of services with respect to identities being available. In particular, knowing the top peering SPs for a given IdP is valuable information to further plan the evolution of the service, the standards, the corresponding monitoring infrastructure, and to plan investment on deploying new services accordingly.
The GÉANT pilot on F-ticks for eduGAIN aims at demonstrating the active collection of authentication traffic from Identity Providers belonging to SAML identity federations. For further information on how to join the F-TICKS pilot, refer to sections for Federation Operators and Identity Providers.
