KNF-symbol.png Entree Federation: Attribute overview

Nl.gif Nederlands En.gif English

The Entree Federation uses attributes to authenticate and autorise users. These attributes contain information (for example a first name) about the user who wants to login at a Service Provider.
The set of used attributes consists of two types of attributes:

  • Mandatory attributes
  • Optional attributes

For most Service Providers the mandatory set of attributes will suffice to authenticate and autorise a user. However there might be situations in which a Service Provider may need more information about a user. In this case one or more optional attributes can be used.
The Identity Provider is responsible for the integrity of the content of the attributes. The Entree Federatie does not validate these values.

Mandatory attributes

On the left side of the table you find the attributes as they are provided by the Identity Provider.
On the right side of the table you find the attributes as they are passed on to the Service Provider by the Entree Federation.
