Introduction: Concepts
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• eduGAIN federates federations
• Federation policy and technology remain untouched
• Providing trust among partners
• Using standards
INTRODUCTION:
Introduction: Architecture

Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Bridging Elements
• Adapt eduGAIN
messages to local
protocols
• Query the MDS for
other BEs in the
infrastructure
• Several BEs
available
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Federation Peering
Point
• Publishes SAML
2.0 metadata to the
MDS
• Metadata
describes federation
interfaces in
eduGAIN, such as
IdPs, SPs, AAs..
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Metadata Service
• Allows storage and
retrieving of
federation
information
• Follows REST
approach
• Metadata must be
signed by the FPP

eduGAIN in real life
• Two approaches
– Components
• URN Registry
• eduGAIN PKI
• MDS-based WFAYF
• eduGAINFilter
– Applications / Projects
• autoBAHN
• Web applications
• perfSONAR, DAMe
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Components: URN Registry
•
•
•
•
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Each eduGAIN component MUST have a unique URN
Registry can be delegated
Can produce XML output
Format:
urn:geant:edugain:component:be:rediris:rediris.es
• URL: http://registry.edugain.org
Components: eduGAIN PKI
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• Each eduGAIN component MUST have a X.509 certificate
– Which includes the previously registered URN
• Different RAs can be delegated from eduGAINSCA
• URL: http://sca.edugain.org
• eduGAIN supports multiple roots of trust
– Certs MUST include a proper URN
– CA MUST comply to eduGAIN PMA policy
Components: MDS-based
WFAYF (1)
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• WFAYF = Which Federation Are You From
• Queries the MDS for available federations and IdPs

- IdPs

• Highlight available
federations
• Federation info
available through
javascript events
• Servlet can be
queried by other
interfaces
Components:
eduGAINFilter
•
•
•
•
•
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Implementation of the javax.servlet.Filter interface
eduGAINizes any application inside a servlet container…
… without any federation software!
Operates as an eduGAIN Remote Bridging Element
Beta version available at GÉANT2 SVN
Applications: autoBAHN (1)
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• AutoBAHN is a research activity for engineering,
automating and streamlining the inter-domain setup of
guaranteed capacity (Gbit/s) end-to-end-paths
• A chained-solution is adopted:
– A user is authenticated and his/her BoD request is
authorized successively in each domain on the path
where bandwidth should be scheduled.
– The scheduled resource are enabled in each domain by
the Domain Manager (DM) only after AA

Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
Applications:
AutoBAHN (2)
• User authN is
performed through
eduGAINFilter
• DM fetches user
data and includes it
in the WS message
using SAML Parser
• Each IDM may use
the data to perform
authorization locally
Applications: WebSSO
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• eduGAINized applications
– Wikis
• JRA5 wiki: http://wiki.rediris.es/jra5
• DemoWiki: http://demowiki.feide.no
– OTRS: http://edugain-rnd.srce.hr/otrs/customer.pl
• Lessons learned
– We need attribute conversion
– We need to agree on access policies
– It works :-)

eduGAIN FAQs
Connect. Communicate. Collaborate
• Question: What the $%&/ is eduGAIN about?
– Answer: Watch the presentation from the beginning
• Q: Does this freak stuff really work?
– A: YES
• Q: What do I need to become part of the infrastructure?
– A: The recipe is: Choose your SW, add a pinch of URN and mix it
with certificates; cook your metadata on slow fire, take it from the
fire and place it in a MDS. It can be seasoned with your own CA.
• Q: My problem can’t be solved with the current eduGAIN profiles
– A: Contact us!
