SWAMID Policy Framework
For an Identity Federation trust is everything. To enable trust there is a federation policy that regulates the federation operator’s organisation and working methods as well as the regulatory framework for Identity Providers and Service Providers.
The policy framework for SWAMID consists of three parts: SWAMID Federation Policy describes the management and organization, assurance profiles describing what a relying party can expect from a educational sector login via SWAMID and technology profiles describing the technical interfaces WebSSO SAML and eduroam. Alongside the assurance and technology profiles are also Entity Categories to facilitate communication between Identity Providers and Service Providers.
