ADFS in Federations

Chris Phillips, wearing his hat from the Canadian Access Federation, provided a presentation about work on an ADFSToolkit, being jointly run by CAF and SWAMID, the access management federation in Sweden. Chris reviewed the drivers behind creation of the toolkit, including a proposal to Ontario for educational access to the services.

Also, ADFS, while small in the number of institutions using it, is growing. The ADFSToolkit provides a way for ADFS to process metadata, support R&S and other entity categories, and provide for attribute release. The toolkit is intended to augment support for federation, not replace Shibboleth. The goal is to begin deputizing ADFS, vs. demonizing the product.

The ADFSToolkit is published in Github. Chris’s slides are published on the agenda above.
