How Studid authenticates your users

We authenticate users with their institutions using the SAML Protocol.

Studid is a registered service provider for the German DFN-AAI federation. This affiliation allows Studid to authenticate users with all German institutions (identity providers) over SAML.

DFN-AAI is itself also a participant of the eduGAIN interfederation service that connects identity federations around the world. This allows Studid to also authenticate users with all institutions which federations are participating in eduGAIN.

The SAML authentication flow will look like:

  1. Studid creates a signed SAML request for your user
  2. User is forwarded with the SAML request to the institution
  3. User authenticates with institution
  4. Institution signs and encrypts user data and redirects user with this data back to Studid
  5. Studid verifies integrity of SAML response and saves response data
