Good Federation Citizenship

You have many options as you manage your organization’s participation in InCommon. How do you know which are preferred? What policies and implementations should you consider adopting as a good citizen of the federation?

This IAM Online gives an overview of recommended practices and configurations for both Identity Providers (IdPs) and Service Providers (SPs) to best support interoperability with the widest variety of federation partners.

By definition a federation is made up of many different identity providers (IdPs) and service providers (SPs). The InCommon federation defines some baseline requirements all participants must meet, but each provider has different priorities. We’ll discuss areas such as forced reauthentication, SSO session lifetime and default attribute release profiles, as well as how specific configuration elements can impact interoperation between IdPs and SPs.
