F-ticks statistics (pilot) - beta

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:, 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 f-ticks@edugain.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
