eduGAIN provides campus users access to international services

NC State students, faculty, staff, and researchers can now use their Unity credentials to authenticate to international educational services via eduGAIN.

NC State is leveraging its InCommon participation via Shibboleth to offer campus users single sign-on convenience to 40 international federations in the eduGain global inter-federation service. eduGain provides single sign-on interaction with international higher education institutions, research organizations and corporate service providers. eduGAIN brings the same benefits as those provided by InCommon but on a global scale. NC State campus users will have access, where authorized, to:

  • online journals and databases registered with participating federations
  • collaborative services offered in various countries by virtual organizations
  • international tools for analyzing and sharing data
  • educational services offered via other national federations
