3. SAML2int profile

Draft circulated via the list and uploaded to the wiki under FIWG "Working Drafts":

MOU salient points and proposal:

  • KI and REFEDS should collaborate around providing an open and transparent development and evolutionary home for the SAML2INT Web SSO Interoperability Deployment Profile (PROFILE).
  • The basic division of responsibilities is that:
  1. Terena will support the activities through communications to raise awareness and recruit resources within European Research and Education networks.
  2. KI provide a Standards Fostering environment for the development and evolution of the PROFILE as well as development and hosting of tools and a certification program to add value to the PROFILE.
  • The partnership and project would be jointly branded (KI and REFEDS) and presented as a public-private partnership. In fact the development of profiles and certification programs for emerging identity technologies fits well in to the REFEDS mission (via Terena) and supports further benefits to knowledge sharing and the interest of members of both organizations – REFEDS and KI.  Furthermore, this partnership will provide additional value by more strongly connecting the efforts of the REFEDS and KI communities across varying international borders and industry verticals.


  • A straw-man TODO for implementing the proposed joint collaboration around fed-lab2.


  1. Refine agreement and terms of partnership with KI.
  2. Develop communications plan to raise awareness, educate and recruit resources to ensure viable life-cycle development of the PROFILE which emphasizes international and varying industry stakeholder involvement.
  3. Coordinate and contribute to the development of Press materials with KI.
  4. Route REFEDS and any European feedback regarding change requests received by REFEDS to the KI FIWG for consideration and, where appropriate, incorporation.
