SWITCH edu-ID Adoption
at an Organization
Phase 1: Planning and Concept
In a first phase an organization-specific integration plan is elaborated. The organisation sets the goals of the edu-ID adoption, and identifies opportunities and risks. Based on the analysis of the current IT infrastructure and identity management (IdM) processes, an adoption concept, and a time and resource plan gets developed.
Phase 2: Technical Implementation
In this phase the adoption concept from Step 1 is implemented. This mostly covers the adaptation of registration processes to onboard organizational members and the exchange of attribute information between the organization and edu-ID.
Phase 3: User Transition
In the final phase, current organizational members are moved from the organizational AAI account to SWITCH edu-ID. Crucial aspects are appropriate communication and user support.
More specific information like How-Tos or specifications can be found in the support section of the SWITCH edu-ID service.
