There is an unresolved issue with this SP, in that they are unable to support the eduPersonTargetedID attribute to offer personalisation to users in their service, and are requiring IdP operators to release attributes containing personal information such as mail, givenName and sn to access the service. This requires passing of personal information about users, which Jisc believe is unnecessary and not in the spirit of our Technical Recommendations for Participants or our recommendations for use of personal data within the federation. The Trust and Identity team (supporting the UK federation) and Jisc Collections are continuing discussions related to this matter, and with the service provider.

Info4Education is the IHS education platform providing access to standards, regulatory, product and supplier information on construction, health and safety and engineering from organisations across the world.

Info4Education includes The Construction Information Service (CIS), The Occupational Health and Safety Information Service (OHSIS) and Specify-It.
