eduGAIN Metadata Management Opt’s
  • 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.

*Process available but requires documentation.

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

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.
