Service providers are organizations or individuals who provide services that appear in the EdUnify registry.  Unverified service providers are named using the hostname or IP number included in their endpoint bindings.  Verified service providers are named with their official name as part of the service provider verification process.  Verified service providers specify service provider administrators, who are authorized to manage the verified service provider account and specify service managers who may register and manage entries for the service provider in the EdUnify registry.
