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.

Standard 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 1 First name string Piet
sn 1 Surname string Pukkelen
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

1 Attention: During the implementation of the coupling the Service Provider can choose to receive either the first name or the surname. If the Service Provider prefers to receive both names the school has to sign a Attribute Release Policy form.

Additional attributes

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

1 Attention: The encrypted version of this attribute will always be passed on to Service Providers. To pass on the unencrypted version the school has to sign an Attribute Release Policy.
2 Attention: Bij de implementatie van de koppeling kan de Service Provider ervoor kiezen om óf de voornaam óf de achternaam te ontvangen. Als de Service Provider zowel de voornaam als de achternaam wil ontvangen dan moet hiervoor een Attribute Release Policy worden ondertekend door de school.

Attribute release policy

Door het ondertekenen van een Attribute Release Policy geeft een school toestemming om bepaalde aanvullende attributen aan een specifieke Service Provider dooor te geven. Een overzicht van Attribute Release Policies is te vinden op de support pagina van Kennisnet.
