The eduCLAIMS Project

The eduCLAIMS project created a Proof-of-Concept web service for issueing W3C verifiable claims for educational purposes.

The objective of the project was to leverage the already-existing eduGAIN infrastructure, including metadata distribution, REFEDS assurance profiles, attribute definitions and the 50M potential user accounts to the maximum effect and create a system with the lowest entry barrier possible so that to maximize the user base.

The eduCLAIMS project was funded by the GÉANT Innovation Programme.

Project Description

There are multiple efforts with similar goals, however the eduCLAIMS project features several distinguishing factors:

These features together make sure that both those who don’t own a smartphone by choice or necessity (a constant cohort that never reaches zero in our estimation) can use the system (no wallets or QR codes). But also, those who only use smartphone or chromebook can use it (pdf signature verification optional). Finally there are no badge displayers or JSON interpreters necessary.
