Both IdPs and SPs can provide logos that get embedded in their metadata - and can be used to provide users a visual clue in various parts of the user experience - an IdP logo can help identifying the right IdP at the Discovery Service, an SP logo displayed on the IdP login page can confirm to the user which service the user is logging into.  And eduGAIN strongly encourages both IdPs and SPs to provide logos.

To provide a logo, please include an HTTPS link to your logo together with the request to join eduGAIN.  The Tuakiri team will take care of including the logo in the metadata sent to eduGAIN.
