Service Provider
Any organisation may apply to join GRENA Identity Federation as a Service Provider as long as the services provided promote the academic, research and educational work. 

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

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

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 Service Provider can modify the service specific information.
