The EGI Check-in service (also called EGI AAI proxy) enables access to EGI services and resources using federated authentication mechanisms. Specifically, the proxy service is operated as a central hub between federated Identity Providers (IdPs) residing ‘outside’ of the EGI ecosystem, and Service Providers (SPs) that are part of EGI. The main advantage of this design principle is that all entities need to establish and maintain technical and trust relation only to a single entity, the EGI AAI proxy, instead of managing many-to-many relationships. In this context, the proxy acts as a Service Provider towards the Identity Providers and as an Identity Provider towards the Service Providers.
