Identity and access management: general information
University of Trento issues three main types of accounts:
- @guest.unitn.it: issued to foreign persons, minors or who cannot use a certified digital identity (SPID or CIE) who are not yet part of the University community (for example, those who want to enrol in a Degree Programme or participate in selections or competitions). The service is managed by the GiADA application
- @unitn.it: issued only to persons formally and definitively identified by a University structure (for example to staff and students at the end of the enrollment) or by SPID/CIE/CieID App accreditation. The service is managed by the ADA application
- @visiting.unitn.it: issued during the reception phase of conferences and events for occasional guests who must access the Internet. The service is managed by the Visiting application
In addition, @unitn.it account can also be obtained and used by authenticating with:
- CIE - Electronic Identity Card or CieID App (their correspondence is based on the Fiscal Code). If one does not yet have an @unitn.it account, one's CIE/CieID App can also be used for self-service accreditation, thus independently obtaining one's @unitn.it account
- SPID credentials (their correspondence is based on the Fiscal Code). If you do not yet have an @unitn.it account your SPID credentials can also be used to accredit yourself in self-service mode, thus independently obtaining your @unitn.it account
Incardination: from account @guest.unitn.it to account @unitn.it
If you only have a self-registered account @guest.unitn.it, once you have completed the entry phase (e.g. enrollment, selection or competition) and your identity has been verified, an automatic procedure guides you in acquiring your final account @unitn.it.
Federations: access with account @unitn.it
The University is a member of the eduGAIN, IDEM and eduroam Federations, whose services are accessible with @unitn.it account
Most computer services that require an authentication phase use one of the types of accounts supported at the University level; however, there are also services accessible through specific local accounts.
