IDEM Service


The EUI is a member of the IDEM (IDEntity Management for federated access) service, the authentication and authorisation infrastructure of the GARR network.

IDEM is the first Italian Academic and Research Federation of Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructures (AAI), aimed at enabling users of the national scientific and academic community to more easily access networked services and content made available by different organisations.

IDEM membership offers users of the EUI the advantage of using the EUI credentials (username and password) to access all the resources made available by the Federation.

By becoming a member of the Federation, the EUI is also able to reduce utility management costs and create new services, exercising greater control over the authentication and authorisation processes.

GARR acts as a coordinator within the IDEM Federation, providing the central infrastructure and services and signing Membership Agreements.

For issues related to your EUI credentials (username and password) and/or trouble logging in, please contact the EUI4U Helpdesk.

The services accessible through the Federation are made available by IDEM members and partners. For each request to access the services, the system will provide the owner of the specific service with the following information:

  • name and surname of the user;
  • EUI email address;
  • an anonymous, persistent, non-reassignable user identifier (a string automatically generated by the system that does not contain user information);
  • information about the user’s EUI affiliation (consisting of a macro-profile of the user, e.g. Fellow, Professor, Researcher, Staff, Alumnus, etc.).

to enable the service provider to identify the correct authorisation profile.

Who it is intended for

All EUI members with a valid computing account.
