Innovation through participation
Some design criteria
Existing participant federations’ policies are not changed
eduGAIN only mediates participant federations’ SAML2 metadata
Mandatory requirements for Home Orgs and SPs minimised
Behavioral issues (LoA, privacy) left to eduGAIN’s optional profiles
Attribute changes minimised
eduGAIN attribute profile recommends displayName, CN, mail,
eP[S]A, schacHomeOrg, schacHomeOrgType
Initially WebSSO, but leaves the door open for else
Optional SAML WebSSO profile (SAML2int.org v0.2)
Initially European, but leaves the door open for others
Funding comes from Europe
Other federations can join as well
