As part of the work for phase 1 of the SIRTFI implementation plan (https://wiki.refeds.org/display/GROUPS/SIRTFI), SIRTFI is proposing a security contact metadata extension, with the intent that it would be adopted by REFEDS member federations in order to allow handling of security incidents between federation partners.  InCommon has been using a metadata schema extension for several years and it has proven useful for IdP and SP operators. A recent presentation by Jim Basney at the WISE workshop gives more detail.


All comments and discussion on this consultation should be made on: consultations@lists.refeds.org. 


The proposed extension can be found in two parts.


The intention for this proposal is in two parts:

  1. To establish a REFEDS namespace for the management of Metadata Extension Schema.
  2. To accept the specific proposal for the Security Contact extension.

As the use of the a REFEDS namespace is proposed the agreement of the REFEDS community is required.  A previous consultation on the full details of the SIRTFI approach has been carried out so REFEDS Participants are invited to raise OBJECTIONS to a namespace being created and implemented as described above only.

The consultation opens on Monday 4th April 2016 and closes on Sunday 17th April 2016 at 5pm CEST.
