Key Decisions● Will the federation operator centrally managethe network, or will each IDP manage itself?● "Mesh federation" implies each institutionshas its own IDP. Will it be a simultaneous rollout or one by one?
● If no central management, each IDP shouldbe aware of continued operationalresponsibilities.Educate Institutions
Build Consensus w/ Institutions● What apps or functionalities are needed?○ FreeRADIUS for Eduroam?○ Unique authentication logic?○ Google apps?● Set timeline for roll out
Recommended Roll Out- Build puppet recipe for unique requirements.- Design federation: procedures, policies,schema.- Batch Installations: 5-10 institutions at a time.- Centrally manage to ease onboarding anddecrease responsibility of each institutions.
