eduGAIN "raising the bar"

Question from SURFConext:

"A question about We get quite some warnings
for SP's "md:RequestedAttribute not found" and/or "CoCo declared but md:RequestedAttribute element
not found". But we think it's a feature - it's even better because these SP's only want a NameID,
nothing else."

Meeting Close


Discussion on how to deal with members that have been dorman dormant and are now participating. MRPS flagging and revalidation FYI to the SG.

Set 'grace' period, 3-6 months. It should be clear that MRPS must be in place when a federation joins eduGAIN.

  •  Brook Schofieldto alert members that fall into the category of the requirements for re-establishing membership.  

Revalidating changes to policy documents won't be taken on as a task at this point in time.


OT to look at statistics on who's using the OLD feed location.

  •  Tomasz Wolniewiczto share statistics on whether the "old" feed has been used and where with the eduGAIN SG list.  

eduGAIN "raising the bar"

The eduGAIN Compliance Issues wiki page has been to be updated and this is an ongoing process.


CoCo monitor: is it useful if it could alarm the helpdesk.

  •  Nicole Harristo establish a small eduGAIN working group to look at recommendations on next steps for technical and behavioural standards in eduGAIN.  

eduGAIN SG Chair

The eduGAIN Steering Group Chair position that is currently held by Brook Schofield has expired.


The current observers to the eduGAIN SG will also be flagged to the SG as these positions need to be re-validated.
