Federation Operator Guidelines – an official Kantara Initiative recommendation

We are happy to announce that the Federation Operator Guidelines (FOG) Version 1.0 has passed the All-Member Ballot and is now an official Kantara Initiative Recommendation.
The document provides guidelines for an identity federation operator, an entity that defines and oversees a collective of cooperating credential service providers and relying parties. If you want to get a better understanding of the FOG Recommendation, the document can be found on the Kantara Initiative site.
Congratulations to the Identity Assurance Work Group (IAWG) and it’s members for their diligent work in completing this Recommendation.  Thanks to all who voted — this is a major milestone for Kantara Initiative with more to come in 2011.
