Workshop: AARC Training: Defining a training module for scalable attribute release in federation and interfederation
One of the goals of the AARC project is to promote the adoption of federated access to enable research and collaboration use cases. To achieve this, AARC is committed to develop different training packages that build on existing material and best practices. AARC wants to promote further the work done by REFEDS on entity categories as a scalable approach to release attributes.
This meeting is aimed at Federation Operators to invite them to provide feedback on a proposed training module to support Identity Providers to release attributes.
* Motivation for the proposed training module *
As known to service providers and research collaborations, a poor/insufficient attribute release could deny access to federated resources.
The aim of the proposed module is to agree with federation operators on a common approach to promote existing practices and procedures that can be used to help IdP operators to implement an effective attribute release in compliance with the data protection law.
This module is built on last year event and on the additional experience gained in this area.
During the meeting the following will be presented:
- The training module GARR will offer to their IdPs at the beginning of June and the feedback gained on that;
- Ways to implement a scalable IdP attribute release based on entity categories and requested attributes. Examples of configurations with or without registry will be given.
