Join as identity provider
We strongly encourage IdPs to join this (pilot) service via thier federation operators and send F-ticks via federation aggregators.
If federation operator has no resources or interest to participate in the (pilot) service by setting up a federation aggregtor IdPs from the respective federation can join individually but only with the consent of the federation operator.
In order to directly join eduGAIN F-ticks pilot service an IdP has to:
- set-up sending F-ticks to central collector
- provide appropriate information to the eduGAIN F-ticks team
IdP has to be set-up to send ticks to the central eduGAIN collector in the right format and to the right address (IP: 22.214.171.124, port: 514).
We offer information for set-up of Shibbloleth (IdP v.3+) and SimpleSAMLphp IdP (see IdP configuration).
Once the IdP is properly set-up IdP operator has to provide appropriate information to the eduGAIN F-ticks team by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. This e-mail must be sent by the IdP operator and confirmed by the federation's eduGAIN representative and it should contain:
- federation's name
- IdPs name
- IP address of the IdP (the hosts that sends out the ticks)
- list of attributes used in IdP's f-ticks
