Brief history of the federation among the Centers 1968～ 69 Established as supercomputer centers for nation-wide service 1988 JAIN (Japan Academic Interuniversity Network) project started • IP over X. 25 1981 Connected by commercial X. 25 service 1986 Dedicated interuniversity X. 25 network service was started by NACSIS (predecessor of NII) Federated Identity Management (～ 2004) • Unified ID • Online subscription to secondary centers 1992 SINET, the academic Internet backbone service was started by NACSIS 2002 Operation of Super. SINET was started 2003 NAREGI (National Research Grid Initiative) project started

UPKI: requirements Scalability up to 800 universities in Japan • Centralized system will never work • Federated ID management is indispensable Security against so many cyber attacks and increasing physical attacks Privacy Compliant to the law of privacy protection in Japan • Enforced since April 2005. Mobility Both students and professors may visit other universities Cost National Universities has become an independent agency since 2004.
UPKI: basic idea Deployment of Grid/PKI middleware for national academic AA infrastructure Management of faculty members, administrative staffs and students Virtual Organizations (VO) like committees, research groups or academic societies should be supported Targets all of Educational activities like E-learning Administrative works like exchange of credits among universities Research activities like Grid computing Other networking services like WLAN roaming and a single infrastructure is by all applications AA based on Federated Identity Management is the key PKI solves some authentication issues, but not all PKI itself has many problems in deployment

Case study The Consortium of Universities in Kyoto http: //www. consortium. or. jp/ Consortium of 50 universities in Kyoto 3 national, 2 prefectural, 2 municipal, 43 private Most of them are in the center area of Kyoto City Activities Shared lecture rooms near JR Kyoto Shinkansen station. • Class for ordinary students, evening classes and classes for graduated adults • Open Web terminals, WLAN services Exchange of credits among universities in very conventional manner How academic AAI will help them?

Summary UPKI national academic authentication and authorization infrastructure project has just started. Conducted by NII and the information infrastructure centers in 7 universities As a basis of CSI (Cyber Science Infrastructure), the next generation of SINET/Super. SINET Actually, federated identity management is unavoidable even in a (big) university And political issues also exist We have started later, so we have get same advantage International federation/collaboration is a very important issue.
