REFEDS Discovery Guide, Mark 2

Consent is used often within identity federations. While on a national level it may be clear what asking and giving consent entails, unfortunately consent does not mean the same thing in various countries as the legal grounds for consent vary. Also there are many ways to implement consent. What makes a good consent page and what does not? When is it (not)   user friendly, what should be shown to make it legally usable? What are the best practices around consent globally?

This activity investigates what it means to ask and give consent in various countries. In addition it describes recommendations for 'good' and 'bad' consent pages similar to the REFEDS Discovery Guide.

Include note on how hub and spoke federations manage discovery.

Service Catalogue definition

Various proposals have been made to create a federation service catalogue, most recently at ACAMP: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GHerhDYfwlgjN5-pQEryJF0RqOp7R_tWuHiuW5gTdjQ.  This work will focus on defining staged requirement sets for a service catalogue and make recommendations as to how to implement such a service and where this should be hosted.
