Identity Provider
Any Georgian education or research institution can become Identity Provider; only one Identity Provider per institution is allowed. 

For an Identity Provider to join GIF, the following requirements must be met:
 completed membership service agreement signed by official representative of the institution;
 provide description of their identity management practices;
 provide technical and administrative contact information;
 elements and attributes to be registered must use a domain name of that institution.

The administrators appointed by the institution would then get an access to the Metadata Manager service where they would upload the metadata of their IdP.

After the approval, the Federation Operator publishes and maintains the federation's metadata.

Subsequent changes to these elements and attributes do not require re-approval by the Federation Operator. Only, administrators appointed by the institution can modify the IdP specific information.
