RNP - Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa

english | español



Several countries have already created or are creating authentication infrastructure and federated authorization for their academic communities. The software used in CAFe, Shibboleth, was developed by a project of Internet2 to support the creation of the InCommon Federation.

Typically, the initiatives to create federated infrastructure are coordinated by national networks of education and research (National Research and Education Networks – NRENs), as RNP. The advance in the development of federations is such that the Trans-European Research and Education Network (TERENA) keeps, since 2007, a group called Research and Education Federations (REFEDs) to discuss policies and issues related to integration between different federations.
