One of the first important steps towards Swiss edu-ID is the High Level Architecture. The document builds the general frame for the future system design.
The High Level Architecture describes the envisaged future identity management solution of the SWITCH Community (see also summary/flyer). Both documents are available in our document section.
A group of nine IdM specialists out of the Swiss HEI’s contributed to the description of
- basic concepts
- trust, privacy and security principles
- stakeholders and roles
- Identity Management service for Swiss Higher Educationand and
- the Swiss edu-ID Architecture
It is well understood, that collaboration does not stop at national borders. Special care is taken to stay open to future developments to scale internationally and not to introduce incompatibilities with emerging trends and solutions elsewhere.
