Digital identity in R&E cyber space is about persons official data including his username and the password stored in computer database. The database is known as an Identity Database. Each R&E institute is expected to maintain an identity database of its staff (and students).
Linking institutional identity databases to LEARN Identity Access Federation (LIAF) builds trust between institutions locally and also internationally. The trust allowed R&E staff and student to simply access a quite lot of R&E applications and services around the globe by their home institutional credentials.
LEARN digital video conferencing service is one the key service available to staff of LEARN member institutions over federated identity access.
LEARN has become a member of eduGAIN. The eduGAIN interfedration service connects identity federations around the world, simplifying access to content, services and resources for the global R&E community.
The LIAF facilitates local R&E community to access many free or paid services available cross the wold while facilitating local institutions to introduce free or paid services to the community.
