List of Connected Organisations#
B2ACCESS AAI is connected to a huge set of organisations which allows authentication, using the organisational accounts.
B2ACCESS participates in eduGAIN, which offers user authentication with the organisational account across the whole world. The organisation needs to participate in eduGAIN, too. At the moment, more than 4000 organisations participate in eduGAIN. You can check if your organisation is part of eduGAIN, here and setting the Entity Type to Identity Providers.
Sadly there might be problems during the login, even if your organisation is participating eduGAIN. Some national federations, e.g. the Dutch one, are operating an opt-in policy. Here each service, where you want to login, needs to be accepted by your organisation at the first time. You will receive an error on your organisation site with a message similar to “Error - EUDAT B2ACCESS not accessible through your institute.” Please follow the instruction on the page and contact your local IT support.
In some cases the organisation does not release all mandatory attributes to B2ACCESS. In this case you will get an error on B2ACCESS about “The remote authentication was successful, however the server’s policy requires more information then was provided to register your account.”. In this case your organisation needs to release more information. Please contact your local IT support and request to release all mandatory data.
B2ACCESS does not only support organisation accounts but also accounts of research infrastructures. Here is a list of connected research infrastructures or groups you can choose to login:
- INDIGO IAM
social identity providers#
Beside the organisational accounts B2ACCESS supports some social identity providers (IdPs). Those IdPs can be used by users, whose organisation does not participate in eduGAIN. Accounts, authenticated with social IdPs, may have a lower assurance then organisation based accounts. A lower assurance may lower the set of available services or lower the functionality on services. The available social IdPs ares: * Facebook * GitHub * Google * Microsoft Live * ORCID
