Tuakiri - Trust and identity

Tuakiri provides trusted and secure federated identity and access management.

Tuakiri allows an end-user to consume services, access resources, and otherwise collaborate within New Zealand while using their home institution’s identity. This means that the end-user does not require a unique identity with every remote organisation they are working with, simplifying the workflow of both the end-user, and the IT staff as the service being accessed gets trusted identity that has been verified by the home organisation.

The same capability is recreated in many nations around the world, each operating their own equivalent service. These national level services can be linked together using eduGAIN, enabling that same simplified workflow across the globe.
