  2. Proxy IdP – (Current) Architecture
    Proxy IdP is the main gateway between Service
    Providers (SPs) and Authentication Providers (APs)
    – APs provide static & unique (in AP context) AuthnID for Proxy IdP
    – Proxy IdP exploits the AuthnID for resolving global student ID and
    role attributes for SPs
    Proxy IdP uses RoleDB for the student ID and attributes resolution
    Prerequisite: users have registered their desired AP(s)
    to RoleDB
