Research & Education (R&E) WG


What is the Research & Education WG?

Working Group Name:

Research and Education (R&E)

Overview

The purpose of this working group is to develop a set of profiles for the OpenID Connect specifications to ease the adoption of OpenID Connect in the Research and Education (R&E) sector. The profiles will take into account existing practices of federated identity management in the R&E sector, current international standards to represent users that belong to R&E institutions, as well as the existing international trust fabric based on R&E identity federations and multi-lateral trust exchange. The working group will also actively look for the engagement of the R&E international community.
