Quick and secure login

Researchers are increasingly working together: within their own institution, with other institutions or companies and at home and abroad. Joint ventures then require secure access to (cloud) applications, computing clusters, datasets, or data storage. SURF Research Access Management is an 'Authentication and Authorisation Service as a Service' for researchers and research support staff. It provides secure access and uses institutional identities where possible.
