eduGAIN milestone: testing the Feide R-BE

a successfull login was performed at a Feide test service authenticating a user from SWITCH AAI using eduGAIN. The implementation of the Feide eduGAIN remote bridging element (R-BE) made this possible. The Feide R-BE was communicating with the SWTICH H-BE. Attributes were successfully transfered between the two federations, but attribute name translation is not yet in place.

Confederation test successfull between Feide and Haka

At the Nordunet2006 conference HAKA and Feide demonstrated cross-federation with a Shibboleth Service Provider and a Sun Access Manager Identity Provider. A Feide user logged into the CSC Scientist Interface for high performance computing. Mikael Linden presented the technical work and outlined policy work to follow.
