The federation Éducation-Recherche

Welcome on the federation Éducation-Recherche website.

The federation Éducation-Recherche is a service provided by GIP RENATER (Réseau National de télécommunications, pour la Technologie, l’Enseignement et la Recherche) and which offers a technical and trust framework in order to enable participants to secure and simplify access to web resources thanks to Identity federation mechanisms. The Identity federation puts in relation, on the one hand, organizations dealing with resources and proposing applications, services or documents, and on the other hand, organizations dealing with users accessing to those digital resources, the identity providers.

We distinguish three possibles roles in this federation :

  • Members are organizations that must have an up to date agreement with RENATER and can then operate both identity providers and/or resources.
  • Endorsed members are French educational or research organizations that don't have an agreement with RENATER. They can however operate identity providers and/or resources.
  • Partners are other organizations that can only operate resources

An organization willing to propose a resource or service in the federation Éducation-Recherche must subscribe as a partner, accepts the term of the Federation - Partner Charter and comply with the federation technical framework. A glossary of the terms used in the federation Éducation-Recherche is available.

A test federation is available to understand, test and validate the installation and configuration of federation software.

If needed, do not hesitate to contact the federation administrators.
