Because of different contracts, the Jade University is obligated to always keep your user accounts up to date. One specific order is displayed by the service DFN-AAI: With the help of it, members of the university can prove their identity as a Jade University member at other service providers and, thus, use their services (e.g. services of the library). In doing so, the DFN-AAI defines so-called classes of reliability.

The Jade University is part of the “advanced” class of reliability. This results in having to meet minimum standards:

  • Process of identification by means of the used establishment.
    • Identification by attending a personal meeting with an authority of trust with an official document to determine the identity. The established processes of matriculation and employment are approved as such.
  • Process of prooving the identity.
    • Prooving of identity with the help of a personalised user account including a user name, a password or digital certificate. All of this has to be issued within the limits of a safe and secure guideline of allocation.
  • Maintaining of data and the process of identity care.
    • With obligation regarding the accuracy and actualisation within two weeks.
