PEER - Public Endpoint Entities Registry

Page Tree


PEER is envisioned as a lightweight, global registrar for SAML Metadata representing both SAML and non-SAML endpoints (e.g., OpenID, IMI). It is intended as a focused activity to catalyze international use of federated identity. The service is not intended to be a replacement for federation or inter-federation, but is intended to be a tool supporting such activities. The service is intended to be operational by July 2011. It will be operated by an interim operator as a proof-of-concept and move to a permanent home if the service is seen as useful.  Part of the PEER project will include an analysis of sustainability for PEER.
