Status: This document is a Kantara Initiative Recommendation produced by the Federation Interoperability Work Group. It has been approved by the Membership of the Kantara Initiative. See the Kantara Initiative Operating Procedures for more information.
Abstract: This document encompasses a set of software conformance requirements intended to facilitate interoperability
within the context of full mesh identity federations, such as those found in the research and education sector. It
attempts to address a number of common barriers to interoperability and details features that are necessary in order
to use SAML metadata as a foundation for scalable trust fabrics. It supercedes the eGovernment Implementation
