Hello All—

Please note the comment period was closed on 20 September 2010. 

Selected Document: IAWG Federation Operator Guidelines


General comment: I think the paper uses 'federation participant' and 'federation member' interchangeably.  This may need looking at.  

Line 85: would suggest this be downgraded to 'may'.  Not all federation operators are in the business of providing credentials - this is often specifically the role of its members / participants.

Line 132: not all federations will guarantee verification of 'identity', but will assure verification of assertion.  See section 6 of the UK federation Rules Of Membership for more detail.

Line 185: again, not all federations require this type of audit as a 'must' but as a reserve the right to audit.  Clarity needed here as to whether self-audit is included in the meaning of this sentence.
