The eduGAIN service is intended to enable the trustworthy exchange of
information related to identity, authentication and authorisation
between the GÉANT (GN3plus) Partners' federations. The eduGAIN service will
deliver this through co-ordinating elements of the federations'
technical infrastructure and a policy framework controlling the exchange
of this information. The initial goal is to enable Pan-European Web
Single Sign On (Web SSO) to both GÉANT services and to those provided by
other communities represented by, or associated with, the GN3plus
