UK Access Management Federation operator change from August 1st 2011

Posted on Thursday, 24 February 2011

From August 1st 2011 the UK Access Management Federation will be operated on behalf of JISC by a partnership of JISC Collections and EDINA, assuming the role of federation operator from JANET(UK).

Until July 31st 2011 JANET(UK) will continue in the role of managing operator, with the support from EDINA in its role as technical operator.

As the new operator from August 1st 2011, JISC Collections will be responsible for the enrolment of new members, both those who wish to join as service providers and those who wish to join as 'identity providers', typically institutions in education with staff and students.

The role of EDINA, who manage the metadata and provide technical support for the UK federation, remains unchanged and federation members will see no alteration to their service.
