SeamlessAccess

Problem description: SeamlessAccess is a freely available IdP discovery service, designed using the information found in NISO’s “Recommended Practices for Improved Access to Institutionally-Provided Information Resources: Results from the Resource Access in the 21st Century (RA21) Project”.  This service breaks IdP Discovery into two discrete and separable components: the search and discovery of IdPs, and the persistence of a user’s choice of IdP in their browser local storage. SeamlessAccess can be used by any entity that offers IdP discovery services, from SPs to federations themselves.

Mark


Judith Bush

Janemarie Duh

Observation: InC IdPs assert they support R&S attribute release, but do not

Mark



Observation: An InC organization will attempt to register an ADFS IdP but will statically configure SP metadata and will not load metadata changes made by SP until something breaks

Mark


Judith Bush

Observation: IdPs releasing attributes that should have a scope without a scope (for example eduPersonPrincipalName, eduPersonScopedAffiliation)

Mark


Judith Bush

First-hand observation: An InC organization has a name-based identifier that can change, thus breaking federated access to the service
