1. Administrative - roll call


  • Quorate call
  • No previous minutes to approve
2. FEDLab SAML tests update



  • Next call consideration: Maybe do a discussion paper to lay out a kind of project plan
  • Action: Put Rainer's 'SAML Profile Test Concept' draft paper on the wiki for easier reference (completed on 20th Dec?).
  • Action: Put this topic on the list for discussion at the European IIW Vienna meeting, Feb 12/13th
3. UK Gov Profile

Summary: Stephen Dunn agreed to the sharing of the latest draft (still says Dec 2011 but content may have changed?). With some issues noted by FIWG members in the the draft, and actual pilots still ahead that may prove or otherwise the conformance and performance of the draft, attendees generally felt that it was less mature than the other government and SAML2INT profiles, so at this stage FIWG will move ahead without it. 

4. eGov 2 SAML Profile
  • Leif and Colin to reach out to Anil John (GSA) to clarify requirements outlined in recent emails
5. SAML 2 Int Profile

Discussion relating to SAML2 INT profile and the use of FedLab to prgress this work? (or is this still part of 1 above?). Currently the timeline for progress is 'loose', not because of funding $ shortage but because of capability shortage. If work can be done by a Uni (with the capability to do it) in the GEANT network, then that may be a way forward. Steffen Solensen? Sorrensen? (spelling?) the IETF PKIX chair is someone who could help with contacts. The idea is Operational $ has to come from external/Govt sources  

6.  Kantara, OIX and other meta-data aggregator projects

Leif introduced and explained a little about the the Kantara registry effort: and that it was similar to the OIX one in structure. The LOA3 IdP/RP 'market' was small enough globally to use USB tokens for access.   

7. AOB
