Introduction, background and goals for eduID
The eduID.se project has built a common identity and authentication infrastructure for all students and prospective students at Swedish universities and university colleges. The eduID is a SUNET service that is part of the SWAMID federation. The eduID service aims to initially complement and on a long term replace the role of the NyA IdP.
The eduID service has been in production since March 2014. During 2014 further development and roll-out of the service is done as a project that runs in parallel with the service, hence there are references to both the eduID service as well as the eduID Project. With the start of 2015 further development of eduID will be carried out within the service. The roles are the same in the project as in the service.
