The SWAMID federation is based on a technology independent policy, a set of assurance profiles and a set of technology profiles. These documents are available at www.swamid.se.
The SWAMID Policy defines Technology profiles thus:
The Federation Technology Profiles describe concrete realisations of the Policy and Assurance Profiles in terms of specific technologies (e.g. SAML2, OpenID Connect or eduroam).
Technology profiles are documents that rely on standard specifications to describe deployment profiles of existing standard identity technologies. Connecting with SWAMID involve complying with such deployment profiles.
