1 Innovation through participation eduGAIN Training Federation Metadata Management Tools eduGAIN Training Vienna 17 Oct 2011 Brook Schofield, TERENA

2 Innovation through participation eduGAIN Metadata Management Opt’s Goal is to create a SAML metadata file Tip #1: Brook doesn’t understand this space… proceed with caution. Options as I see them: Manual (use an XML editor) Some Automation via Scripts/Version Control Metadata Management Tools – SWITCH Resource Registry – JANUS-SSP – Federation Registry (AAF)

3 Innovation through participation Types of Federations 4-Types of Federation Mesh Hub&Spoke/Centralised Aggregate (Kalmar2, eduGAIN)  have their own tools (MDS) X.509 (IGTF) Most prominent are: Mesh (27 instances) Hub&Spoke (7 instances either centralised/distributed Tip #2: Stats from the “Proof of Concept” Service Catalogue.

4 Innovation through participation Known Active Federations (with a logo) Slide 4

5 Innovation through participation Those that responded to my survey… Slide 5

6 Innovation through participation …hand me the envelope! QuestionSWITCH RRFed Reg AAFJANUS-SSPIn-House Which Federation? SWITCHaai, Haka, NIIF, Edugate AAF, Tuakiri (NZ), CAFe WAYF, SURFconext Belnet, ACOnet-aai, RENATER, AAI@EduHR, SURFfederatie CustomisationLotsNoneLots LanguagePHPGroovyPHPXSLT, Perl, PHP Missing Features Dependent on generation of software. eduGAIN “opt- in”, MDUI, MD Aggregation *eduGAIN “opt-in”, MD Aggregation Self-Service, eduGAIN “optin”, MDUI, MD Aggregate *Process available but requires documentation. NB:- Signing of metadata outside the scope of these tools – solutions exist.

7 Innovation through participation What is eduGAIN doing about this? Federation Registry (AAF) Working with the NZ Summer of eResearch Project 2 students for 10 weeks for 40 hours per week (800 total hours) Goal is to implement: – eduGAIN “opt-in” process for Federation Registry – …and add support for DiscoJuiceJSON Will pave the way for extra-European federations JANUS-SSP (Primarily WAYF) AMRES’ new identity federation utilising JANUS-SSP in mesh arch. Interest from Edugate and others in extending feature set Tip #3 Contact Brook if you can participate in this work.
