The NgREN IDentity Provider (NgREN IdP), is a SAML standard based service powered by Shibboleth and managed by NgREN that allows people to check their identity when they sign in on web pages and Science Gateways that require user authentication.

NgREN IdP is a member of the Grid Identity Pool (GrIDP) federation and currently authenticates the users of several Service Providers

If your institution does not have an Identity Provider which forms part of the NgREN Federation, you can register in this catch-all IdP

If you are interested in either using NgREN IdP to authenticate people on your website(s) or registering it as an Identity Provider of your Identity Federation(s), please contact

This IdP has been deployed as part of WACREN participation in the ei4Africa programme of Certification Authorities (CAs) and Identity Federations in Africa.
