To review the possibilities of introducing stronger and usable authentication solutions to research and education.
- Compile an inventory of strong authentication solutions and an evaluation of their usability in identity federations for education and research;
- Conduct an analysis of the feasibility of web of trust based enhancement of the authentication level of assurance (LoA) including the description of (e-Research) scenarios;
- Describe a protocol to implement a PGP web-of-trust model to increase the LoA associated with an identity;
- And develop a proof-of-concept for the proposed protocol.
WoT4LoA aims to remove authentication barriers for users in higher education and research, to enable effective collaboration and sharing of resources. The project also encourages the adoption of durable authentication solutions in the community.
