REFEDS offers a wide range of advice and guidance on best practice for research and education federations.  This space is divided into the following sections:



titleValue Proposition

REFEDS has created a document describing the value proposition for federations.  This is a good place

to start if you are considering implementing an identity federation and need more background information

and support.




titleBusiness Case

JISC created a Business Case document to help Identity Providers make the case internally for the work required to

implement SAML.  The document was written at the beginning of the UK Access Management Federation but is still

valid and a valuable resource.



titlePolicy Template

The GÉANT project created a Federation Policy Template to help new and emerging federations quickly

understand the requirements for federation policy and to support an interoperable approach to policy

creation and implementation.  Federations are encouraged to use this template.



titleMetadata Registration

Understanding the Metadata Registration Practices of federations is key to understanding the trust framework for the

federation. REFEDS and GÉANT have created a template Metadata Registration Practice Statement and federations are

encouraged to use this template.  This statement is a requirement for federations joining eduGAIN.
