The ACOnet Identity Federation currently defines two services (called Technical Profiles in the Policy):
eduID.at allows providers of content and services (such as databases, journals or research and collaboration tools) to grant users from other organizations access to their web-based resources – without having to locally manage usernames and associated passwords. eduID.at is based on SAML2 and the saml2int deployment profile.
eduroam allows users of participating institutions to access the wireless network at other participating organizations using their home institution's credentials. All this with a minimal adminstrative overhead. Depending on local policies at the visited institutions, eduroam participants may also have additional resources at their disposal.
