Identity and Access Management

These services deal with authentication, authorization and access to IT and regular services, as well as with digital identity management, with releasing of credentials and user profiling.

The University of Trento provides to its community members a set of ICT services to carry out daily activities. These services can be accessed through a personal account. The list of available services with a specific account is established according to the role played by the person in the University.


The University provides three different types of accounts:

  • it is released to people who do not belong yet to the University community (for example those willing to enrol to a degree course or participate in a selection or call for applications). The service is managed by the application GiADA

  • it is a permanent account released only to formally identified people by a University facility (for example to staff employed by the University or to students who have completed their enrolment procedure). The service is managed by the application ADA

  • it is a temporary account released to access basic services (for example the participants in a meeting who need to access internet). The service is managed by the application Visiting.

Most ICT services requirin an authentications phase use one of the above mentioned accoutn types, which are usable at University level; there also are particular services which may be accessed only through specific local accounts.
