Alberta’s 26 post-secondary institutions are collectively sharing information and strategies to enhance security and privacy.
Canadian Access Federation
Cybera works with its national partner, CANARIE, to develop and promote the Canadian Access Federation. Participating institutions are able to securely access a central catalogue of services and resources that operate within a trusted framework.
Education roaming (eduroam) is a secure, world-wide roaming internet access service. Students, researchers, and staff from participating post-secondary institutions can automatically achieve internet connectivity when visiting other participating institutions.
Federated Identity Management
Federated Identity Management makes it possible for students and researchers to use their home institution’s login credentials to securely connect to more than 2,900 global services, resources, and scientific facilities.
