University of North Carolina Identity Federation


What is the Federation?

The UNC Identity Federation provides the SAML 2.0 metadata definition and operational infrastructure needed to enable federated service delivery among the constituent members of the University of North Carolina.  In short, the Federation encompasses both the policy and technical infrastructure needed to establish trust, security, and cooperation between its members.

The ultimate goal of the Federation is to facilitate the optimization of service delivery and minimize the duplication of resources across the campuses by providing the trust fabric and technical architecture required to exchange authentication credentials and identity attributes in a secure manner.

Who is Participating?

All 17 constituent institutions of UNC (16 universities, 1 high school) along with the Center for Public Television (UNC-TV), and MCNC.
