AARC’s technical work supports collaborations and large-scale research initiatives and aims to improve the experience for users while guaranteeing their privacy and security.
The AARC project builds on the AAI deployments in the research and education sector that led to the AAI frameworks used to date (e.g. eduGAIN). While previous projects addressed specific community requirements and delivered the most suitable AAI for those requirements, AARC focuses on finding solutions for common requirements.
The AARC team has piloted AAI solutions to assess whether they meet the functional and technical integration requirements of research communities and e-infrastructures. Where possible, the components were improved with additional features as needed.
