Demo: student verification with IRMA

This page contains an example of using IRMA for verifying whether someone is a student or not. Additionally, the page explains how this works and how this can be used for instance by webshops that wish to give special offers to students. The first button below can be used to check if a visitor actually is a student. The special point of IRMA is its privacy-friendliness: the visitor discloses no other information than the mere fact that (s)he is a student. This "student" property exists as a special IRMA attribute; only the yes/no information in this attribute is revealed to the requesting webpage.

Via the second button it is possible to request additional information, namely the role of the visitor (student or employee) and the name of the university (or educational institute) with which the student/employee is associated. In this way exclusive access can be organised for students and/or employees of a particular institute.

In order to be able to try out yourself the buttons below one needs to have the IRMA app installed with at least the student attribute loaded. This can be done via SURFconext issuance webpage of the Privacy by Design foundation. A succesful check that the visitor is a student gives access to special offers.
