Members of the Kantara Initiative Federation Interoperability Working Group have recently approved the SAML V2.0 Implementation Profile for Federation Interoperability. The document described below now enters a 45-day public comment and IPR review period in preparation for a member ballot to consider its approval as Kantara Initiative Recommendation.

This document encompasses a set of software conformance requirements intended to facilitate interoperability within the context of full mesh identity federations, such as those found in the research and education sector. It attempts to address a number of common barriers to interoperability and details features that are necessary in order to use SAML metadata as a foundation for scalable trust fabrics. It supersedes the eGovernment Implementation Profile V2.0bis from June 2011.

This is an open invitation to comment. Kantara Initiative solicits feedback from potential users, developers and other interested parties, whether Kantara Initiative members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work. The public review opened on June 14, 2017, and will close July 29, 2017, at 11:59 UTC.
