KNF-symbol.png Entree Federation: Attributes overview for Service Providers

Nl.gif Nederlands En.gif English


To authenticate and subsequently authorize a user the Entree Federation uses attributes. These attributes contain information (for example a firstname) about the user who wants access to a connected Service Provider.
There are two types of attributes used within the context of Entree Federation:

  • Standard attributes
  • Additional attributes

For most Service Providers the set with standard attributes will suffice to authenticate and authorize users. However there are situations in which a Service Provider requires more information about a user. In this case one or more additional attributes can be used.

Default attributes

In this table you can find the attributes that a Service Provider will always receive from Entree Federation.

Attributename Description Format Example
uid Unique ID for the user. This is a encrypted version of the username and employeeNumber, followed by the realm hash@realm qj7cks8qdz9ph54@petteflat
givenName First name string Piet
eduPersonAffiliation Role student, employee, staff or affiliate student
nlEduPersonHomeOrganizationId BRIN code of the institution 4 or 6 characters 11ZZ03
nlEduPersonHomeOrganization Name of the institution string Petteflat College

Additional attributes

The Service Provider will only receive these attributes after the school has given explicit permission by signing an Attribute Release Policy form.
