Welcome to INFED@INFLIBNET Centre
Most publishers use IP filtering as de facto standard for authenticating authorized users in subscribing institutions and providing access to e-resources to them. While IP-based access is most convenient, safe and hasel-free authentication mechanism for publishers as well as for subscribing institutions, it has its limitations. One of the most serious limitation of IP-filtered access to e-resources is that the users can access e-resources only when they are on the Institute campus. Ideally, an authorized user should be able to access e-resources irrespective of his / her physical location at any time as long as he has access to the Internet.
The purpose of the INFLIBNET Access Management Federation is to create a framework within which Members including subscribing institutions as well as publishers can exchange access management information in a way that is responsible and respects end-user privacy.
