SPs often find that the population they want to serve includes individuals who are not represented by campus-based or other institutional IdPs, or the campus IdPs refuse to release attributes necessary for the operation of the SP. Ideally in those cases such individuals could be directed to register with a participating IdP that offered no-cost, easy registration processes. Some services that once fit this description now require onerous charges to SPs for their use, so a second ideal characteristic is that such "IdPs of Last Resort" not charge SPs for their use.
