The GRENA Identity Federation plans to become part of eduGAIN (Education and Global Authentication Infrastructure), the GEANT inter-federation service that connects many research and education identity federations worldwide, simplifying access to content, services and resources for the global research and education community.

The main advantages of the digital identity federation are:
 Students, teachers and researchers have secure access to the services and resources of different member organizations by using existing single institutional account.
 Service providers have opportunity to offer their services to large number of users.
 Institutions do not have to invest in new resources that can be shared through the federation.
