Discussion notes:

Identity Assurance Frameworks:

  • OMBO4-04
  • E-Auth - CAF
  • NIST-800-83
  • TFPAP
  • ISAP
  • Kantara IAF
  • InCommon IAF

Challenges for universities to achieve level 2:

  • Need to evaluate if employees' and students' has been properly validated / verified.
  • Possibility that an unknown university service collects creds in the clear. Nothing stops someone from publishing an unencrypted web form that binds against the university LDAPS or Kerberos system.
  • Cost: assurance = money. Fundamental problem: IDP bears the cost, but the RP gets the benefit.
