Work Description

This work item will work with REFEDS to identify and define entity categories which will help automate and reduce the workload of attribute release and management for identity providers towards service providers. The work will include:

  1. Identifying priority entity categories.
  2. Working within REFEDS to specify entity category types and content, with sensitivity to global needs.
  3. Piloting key use cases within the GÉANT community in collaboration with Task 5: Enabling Users.
  4. Driving take-up of support for entity categories within the GÉANT eduGAIN membership by bringing proposals for their adoption to the eduGAIN SG.

Work Area Leader

Nicole Harris

Work Area Participants

Daniela Pöhn, Tangui Coulouarn, Peter Schober, Lalla Mantovani, Thomas Lenggenhager, Sigita Jurkynaite.

Work Area Actions / Ideas

  1.  REFEDS R&S and GÉANT Data Protection Code of Conduct adoption should be the primary focus of this work area in the first instance. Priorities:
    1. Identity federations that are adopting and document.
    2. Calls / discussions with federations asking if will adopt (talk to Mikael about approach for Code of Conduct).
    3. Review supporting documentation requirements for R&S.
    4. Follow-ups from training in Porto (agenda/presentationsattendees) - perhaps online training clips?
  2. We've been asked to slow-down on creation of entity categories until federations have more experience with what is available but two are in discussion:
    1. Academia. Talk with Mikael, Lukas and Niels.
    2. Affiliation. Previously discussed at REFEDS but not taken forward. 
  3. Establish a liaison with Enabling Users and identify groups that want to use the categories (e.g. CLARIN already mandates use of CoCo within their SPF)
  4. Discuss with Brook / eduGAIN SG - should categories become edugain "recommendations" or best practice or does that over complicate eduGAIN processes?

Risks / Issues

RiskMitigation
Federations not able to move forward quickly enough with adoption due to legal concernsEscalate to senior management via TIC
New ECs not accepted by the communityDon't push too quickly with new categories, give time for embedding
ECs not supported by IdPsReusable training materials - get on agenda at appropriate local events
