Entity Category attribute release in SWAMID

Entity categories are used for data release minimization and scalable attribute release from an Identity Provider within SWAMID to a Service Provider in SWAMID and/or eduGAIN.

If an owner of a Service and the Identity Provider Home Organisation has a bilateral agreement the attribute release can be extended with additional attributes based on the agreement.

Best Practice attribute release based on entity categories

x - Attribute is released if it's available in the Home Organisation Identity Provider.
o - Attribute is released only if requested and required in the metadata for the service and if it's available in the Home Organisation Identity Provider.

  1. The entity category GÉANT Code of Conduct does not have a specific attribute bundle. Instead of an attribute bundle it uses attribute request in metadata for specific required attributes.
  2. norEduPersonNIN and personalIdentityNumber shall only be released when required by entities registered with in SWAMID (registrationAuthority="http://www.swamid.se/").
    • personalIdentityNumber must only contain Swedish Personal Numbers or Swedish Co-ordination Numbers.
    • norEduPersonNIN can besides  Swedish Personal Numbers and Swedish Co-ordination Numbers also contain Interim Personal Numbers from the student documentation system Ladok and the Swedish national study enrolment system.
  3. eduPersonTargetedID should only be released in with the entity category REFEDS Research & Scholarship if eduPersonPrincipalName is reassignable. All Identity Providers in SWAMID must by the SWAMID Assurance Profiles be lonterm unique and therefore it should not noramlly be released.
