We allow students, academics, alumni and researchers to securely login and create a NeSI account profile using the credentials granted by their home organisation via Tuakiri.
Tuakiri - federated identity and access management
Most New Zealand universities and Crown Research Institutes are members of the Tuakiri authentication federation, but many other institutions, including private sector organisations and most central and local government agencies, are not.

Support for users outside the Tuakiri federation
In case your organisation is not part of the Tuakiri federated identity management service, a user can still request a NeSI Account profile. NeSI will (if approved) provision a so-called "virtual home account" on Tuakiri.
