Schema Development: Supporting Accessibility in Federated Environments

Time 04/26/06 04:15PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

This session will describe an end-to-end solution to the problem of supporting users with differing information presentation preferences in a federated environment. The team has been developing recommendations on authorization approaches for the Federal E-Authentication Initiative. Relying on the IMS/ISO standard, Access4All, they have come up with an information model with bindings to LDAP and SAML that institutions can use to capture and express users' personal information presentation preferences. When the user accesses a participating Service Provider (SP) site, the user's IdP delivers the profile via a Shibboleth attribute response. Based on that, the site content and UI is tailored to the user's stated preferences via auto-configuration. Demonstrations will be included.
