* IdP is part of a Hub & Spoke federation (some of them manually have to first approve eduGAIN SPs)
* IdP does not use web-based login form (e.g. Account Chooser Authentication or X.509 login)
* IdP does not allow requests coming from the ECCS servers: technical-test.edugain.org / technical.edugain.org

The tool uses following status for IdPs:
* ERROR (red):
* The IdP's response contains an error or the web page is not returned due a Timeout, Connection or IdP Generic error.
* **Timeout**: considers those IdPs that do not load a standard username/password login page within 60 seconds.
* **Connection-Error**: considers those IdPs that are not reachable due to a connection problem. View the "Page Source" content to discover which problem has the IdP.
* **IdP-Generic-Error**: considers those IdPs that the returned web page does not contain a Login Form, but an unspecified error such as "*An error occured*". This kind of error has been seen on Micrsoft ADFS based IdPs.

* **IdP-Generic-Error**: considers those IdPs that the returned web page does not contain a Login Form, but an unspecified error such as "*An error occured*". This kind of error has been seen on Microsoft ADFS based IdPs.
* The IdP most likely does not consume the eduGAIN metadata correctly.
* **No-SP-Metadata-Error**: considers those IdPs that returns a message like "*No return endpoint available for relying party*" or "*No metadata found for relying party*" instead of the Login Page.
* The IdP has an SSL problem on the HTTP-Redirect Location used by the check:
* **No-SP-Metadata-Error**: considers those IdPs that return a message like "*No return endpoint available for relying party*" or "*No metadata found for relying party*" instead of the Login Page.
* The HTTP SSL certificate used by the IdP is invalid:
* **SSL-Error**
* OK (green):
* The IdP most likely correctly consumes eduGAIN metadata and returns a valid username/password login page. This is no guarantee that login on this IdP works for all eduGAIN services but if the check is passed for an IdP, this is probable.

* The IdP can't be checked because the returned Login Page content is not recognized or the Login Page is always returned, also for the fake SP.
