Deployment Profile work recommendations

The DPWG Deployment Profile Working Group created a major revision to SAML2int, the SAML 2.0 deployment profile, which addressed the issue of unique user identifiers by creating two new pairwise user identifiers to supersede existing attributes. The TAC accepted the group’s final report and recommendations in March of 2019 and Kantara reviewed and ratified the revised profile. The recommendations included changing encryption algorithms, adoption of the new identifiers, SAML 2.1. The TAC will be evaluating the priority and meaning of the recommendations to InCommon. Some of the recommendations will likely be included in a test federation and subsequent iterations of Baseline Expectations.
