Deployment Profile Working Group


Last Month

  • OASIS to formally vote to approve an OASIS profile that revamps and greatly simplifies federated identifiers.
  • Produced a list of items that we didn’t include in SAML2int that fit in a R&E specific deployment profile. We’ll be taking this to TAC to ask if they want us to continue our work or if they want to take advantage of this logical breakpoint to recharter the group. Items we’ve put in SAML2int that get rejected will probably be added to this list.
  • We’ve also identified a hand full of federation operator best practices that we’ll be handing to InCommon operations for recommendations.

This Month

  • On 4/9, we officially opened a community consultation period to review our revised version of SAML2int and announced it on the REFEDS and InCommon participants mailing lists. The revised version and feedback page can be found on the InCommon community consultations page: https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/x/WIPmBQ
  • While the WG awaits community feedback, we're making a few minor edits to further clarify sections of the document. These aren't content changes and shouldn't interfere with the community review other than to help the community understand the requirements.
