Access multiple services with a single user name – protect your personal data!
With the Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI), we are introducing a new way to work with web services in the Slovenian education and research network. ArnesAAI connects users and services in a single entity, in which associated organisations can themselves allocate their members (students, teachers, external associates etc.) a single user name for access to various applications.
Each organisation thus becomes the custodian of the personal data of its own members, while application providers do not need to deal with allocating user names or the sensitive issue of collecting and verifying user data.
The expansion of the Eduroam network to Slovenian universities, libraries and some schools has already established the necessary infrastructure for the new way to use web services.
You can read more information on the technology and the possibility of joining ArnesAAI at aai.arnes.si.
