The MPG-AAI is a Max Planck wide authentication and authorization infrastructure, which was planned and developed as a joint project between the GWDG, the MPDL and the RZG. This infrastructure serves primarily as a secure way for authentication with web applications via Shibboleth and provides single sign-on. A user only needs to sign on once with a web service and is subsequently granted access to further web applications within his federation. The MPG-AAI currently runs in test mode and is used productively. The road is now open to integrate additional Max-Planck Institutes.
