Identity Provider Service


An identity for those who study and for those who search

UNINETTUNO’s Identity Provider Service offers a digital identity allowing to access all the resources of the IDEM (IDEntity Management federated for accessing services) Federation and the interfederation eduGAIN (that interconnects national identity federations to simplifying the access to contents, services and resources for the Research and Education Community).

Federated digital identity allows users to access services and digital resources with a single username and password, your institutional credentials.
IDEM and eduGAIN allow you to access many federated services using your institutional digital identity. For example, you can access electronic journals wherever you are using the same username and password you use to access the university portal.
Benefits for researchers, lecturers and students:

  • Reduction of the number of passwords you need to remember
  • Simplified access to online resources, regardless of where you connect
  • Security of your personal data

The UNINETTUNO Identity Provider complies with the ESI (European Student Identifier), the unique electronic identifier for European students valid at other European educational institutions. It makes it possible to unambiguously identify the identity of the student accessing digital services throughout Europe.
