Requirement

Explanation

User Identifier

subject-id

Mandatory
(at least one of the five attributes)

Life Science Login, along with the services connected through Life Science Login, require to uniquely identify users. Without a unique identifier, it is not possible to distinguish two different users from each other.

As a service that supports Sirtfi, it is required that it is able to uniquely identify users when tracing incidents.

1 The Life Science Login can use eduPersonPrincipalName only if one of the following conditions are met:

i) the IdP supports the R&S Entity Category,

ii) the IdP releases eduPersonAssurance attribute and it has a value of https://refeds.org/assurance/ID/eppn-unique-no-reassign,

iii) the federation in which the IdP has registered has a policy that prohibits the reassignment of the value of the eduPersonPrincipalName attribute

pairwise-id

eduPersonPrincipalName1

eduPersonTargetedID

eduPersonUniqueId

Affiliation

eduPersonScopedAffiliation

Mandatory
(at least one of the two attributes)

Access to many of the services connected through Life Science Login relies on authorising their member users based on affiliation with their home organisation.

eduPersonAffiliation

Level of Assurance

eduPersonAssurance

Optional

Access to the services connected through Life Science Login will be dominantly supported by identities coming from the IdPs from the R&E sector and eduGAIN. Best-fit and natural is to use the Assurance Framework that originated as collaborative work of R&E federations - the REFEDS Assurance suite https://wiki.refeds.org/display/ASS.

To ensure the uniqueness of the identifiers, we expect:


To ensure sufficient identity proofing and credential issuance, renewal, and replacement:


Name

cn

Optional (one is sufficient)

Life Science Login and the services connected through Life Science Login expect to receive the name of the user.

For example, when a user applies for a new project or for membership to an existing project, the managers need to be able to recognise who the applicant is.

displayName


sn + givenName

Mail

mail

Optional

Life Science Login needs to be able to contact the user regarding the status of their account. In addition, many of the services connected through Life Science Login expect the email of the user in order to be able to contact the user about matters related to the service.
