• eduGAIN Entities Database (EED) 
    Ever wanted to get a list of all SPs or IdPs in eduGAIN or look up metadata of a particular entity, and then get a CSV file? Very useful for debugging metadata problems.

  • eduGAIN IsFederated Check (EIFC) 
    Let's you find out which organisations are federated and in eduGAIN yet. Also has the most complete list of organisations in eduGAIN including organisations in H&S federations.
    On top you can see the eduGAIN coverage of all production federations on 

  • eduGAIN Connectivity Check (ECC) 
    Automatically checks all IdPs in eduGAIN if they are properly "connected" to eduGAIN by initiating a login once a day and publishing the results. Also see my previous mail on zombie IdPs :-)

  • eduGAIN Access Check (EAC), beta 
    Let's an SP administrator perform logins to his own service with a range of test identities with different attributes profiles (e.g. staff, student, researcher, with umlauts, etc.).

  • eduGAIN Metadata Validator (EMV) 
    Check and validate metadata using the eduGAIN Metadata profile rules and recommendations as well as some good practice rulesets.

  • eduGAIN Code of Conduct Monitor (ECOCM) 
    Shows the status of all SPs that carry the GÉANT Data Protection Code of Conduct entity category. Also sends emails to admins in case their SP violates one of the CoCo rules.

  • eduGAIN Database Access API (EDAA) 
    Comprehensive REST/JSON API to query the eduGAIN Entities Database. Used by several of the above tools as basis. Requires an API key for some operations.

  • eduGAIN Attribute Release Check (EARC), beta 
    Test how well your IdP releases attributes, not too few and not too many. Also takes into account Research&Scholarship and Code of Conduct support.

All of these tools are now also linked on the new eduGAIN wiki:
