CLARIN-D and DARIAH-D call for action on AAI

To check if Service Providers receive some important attributes (user name, email address, etc.) from the German Identity Providers, the CLARIN-D centers started checking mutual connections between IdPs and SPs. This lead to the (worrisome) conclusion that a significant portion of the IdPs in the DFN-AAI federation do not release enough information to ensure a well-functioning setup. As a (hopefully temporary) alternative, the CLARIN IdP (see below) was launched. At the same time, CLARIN-D and DARIAH-DE released a call for action to the German Identity Providers and the DFN-AAI, stressing the importance of releasing personal attributes to trustworthy academic SPs.
