The GÉANT Trust Broker (GNTB) was developed in response to the Open Call during the GN3plus project.
Aim of the GNTB project is the specification of a new automated metadata exchange service for large-scale authentication and authorization infrastructures, i.e., federations and inter-federations.
Trust Broker allows users to initiate the first-time contact between service providers (SPs) and identity providers (IDPs) to perform required preparations for identity data exchange in a fully automated manner.
This task will be carried out during the first year of GN4 with the aim to finalise any pending work and to prepare for a pilot.
The demo setup looks like following:
