HEXAA is a GÉANT GN3plusOpencall funded project that runs between October 2013 and March 2015.

HEXAA is carried out in collaboration of MTA SZTAKI  and NIIFI.

Objective:
Develop a new Attribute Authorities (AA) implementation which would facilitate AA integration into federations and eduGAIN.

Approach:

The HEXAA proposal includes a detailed study on present applications of AA, and profound research on the legal and policy aspects. Due to the problem of the limited attribute set that can be provided by real life Identity Providers a user-centric AA is proposed. Based on this concept, a new AA implementation is to be developed which would facilitate AA integration into federations and eduGAIN. The work will be tightly connected to existing collaboration task forces (REFEDs, GN3plus JRA3) in order to get early feedback and provide knowledge sharing. Moreover, HEXAA plans to integrate the developed solution with multiple e-Science applications.
