Today all entity metadata distributed by InCommon is in the form of signed SAML metadata aggregates. A secure, offline metadata signing process aggregates metadata registered by InCommon Participants together with metadata imported from eduGAIN and pushes the signed metadata aggregates to a secure, publicly accessible metadata server.

Eventually the unwieldy metadata aggregates will give way to per-entity distribution methods such as those based on the Metadata Query Protocol.

A Per-Entity Metadata Pilot is in progress until further notice.
