The Great Federation Showdown: IdP versus SP

Time 10/16/17 09:00AM-09:50AM

Room Bayview B

Session Abstract

In this session, Tom Barton moderates and referees as IdP and SP operators go head-to-head over inter-operability issues. In one corner, we have brave campus IdP operators defending and protecting user privacy from those that would do them harm. In the opposite corner, we have stoic SP operators facilitating research and science despite interference from powerful bureaucracies. Watch as both sides make their case for how the other disrupts inter-operability, and then in a twist switch sides to argue their opponent's case. All in good fun, this session aims to explore different perspectives, foster a better understanding between collaborators, and build on the successes of the InCommon federation.
