Basic information about BME Directory

The primary task of the BME Directory is to provide a central identification service for all university citizens. Websites that use directory identification do not need to be registered separately, we can access the protected page or service by entering the directory ID and password. Such websites automatically receive certain information about the user when they log in. For example, if a departmental website receives the Neptun code of a person who has entered when entering the directory, he or she can immediately show a student the homework assigned to him or her, or their ratings.

The primary source of educational data stored in the Directory is Neptun, the primary source of employee data is the SAP system. Anyone who has a user in Neptun or SAP will automatically receive a directory user ID. In order to use this, you will need to set a directory password, as this will not be retrieved from Neptun for security reasons. The password can be set on the user administration page. Employees receive their initial passwords from the IT Directorate.

Access to the directory is always done on the central ID page of the BME Directory, under the address Pages that use directory access are redirected here first, and then after successful login, the user's browser is redirected to the original webpage, this time in an already identified state. This method makes web access more secure, as instead of entering your password on a large number of websites, our browser only communicates with a single central page.

In addition to the growing number of websites, it is also possible to use the classroom PCs of the Student Computer Center by providing directory information.

Our university participates in the HREF (Hungarian Research and Education Federation), through the Directory, so the directory ID is also an eduID. This means that websites that use federated authentication accept not only users of their institution, but also users identified by other institutions in the federation, and provide access to certain resources. An example of this is the Videotorium.
