  • Goal is to create a SAML metadata file

  • Tip #1: Brook doesn’t understand this space… proceed with caution.

  • Options as I see them:

    • Manual (use an XML editor)

    • Some Automation via Scripts/Version Control

    • Metadata Management Tools

      • SWITCH Resource Registry

      • JANUS-SSP

      • Federation Registry (AAF)


Types of federations
Types of Federations

  • 4-Types of Federation

    • Mesh

    • Hub&Spoke/Centralised

    • Aggregate (Kalmar2, eduGAIN)  have their own tools (MDS)

    • X.509 (IGTF)

  • Most prominent are:

    • Mesh (27 instances)

    • Hub&Spoke (7 instances either centralised/distributed

  • Tip #2: Stats from the “Proof of Concept” Service Catalogue.




Hand me the envelope
…hand me the envelope!

*Process available but requires documentation.

NB:- Signing of metadata outside the scope of these tools – solutions exist.


What is edugain doing about this
What is eduGAIN doing about this?

  • Federation Registry (AAF)

    • Working with the NZ Summer of eResearch Project

    • 2 students for 10 weeks for 40 hours per week (800 total hours)

    • Goal is to implement:

      • eduGAIN “opt-in” process for Federation Registry

      • …and add support for DiscoJuiceJSON

    • Will pave the way for extra-European federations

  • JANUS-SSP (Primarily WAYF)

    • AMRES’ new identity federation utilising JANUS-SSP in mesh arch.

    • Interest from Edugate and others in extending feature set

  • Tip #3 Contact Brook if you can participate in this work.
