Welcome to the SA NREN Login Proxy

This login proxy facilitates logins to many SA NREN services, and allows authentication via the South African Identity Federation (SAFIRE) as well as a number of social login providers. It also allows you to link an institutional email address to an account from another provider, which is useful for SA NREN services that need to verify whether you're a member of a South African higher educational institution.

Some of the services behind this authentication proxy include:

Test your login

If you wish, you may test your login to this service.

Login Test

Once logged in, you will see a test page that simply displays all the attributes we get from your identity provider, normalised into out own schema.

Manage your linking if you need to change the email address that is presented to services (for instance, to link one from your higher educational institution).

Manage Linking

Changing the email address will send an email to that account to verify that you own it.
