The subject: “SAML based Identity Federations have been operated at NRENS for over 10 years. This house contends that the current architecture for SAML federations is outdated and must be replaced within the next 3 years”.

The debate will be between two panels taking the affirmative and the negative side of the argument. Each panel includes: a representative from management / executive looking at the viewpoint as a funder and strategic director; a technology expert; a representative from the user / community.
