This live webinar will explain extensions to the REFEDS Assurance Framework and implementations that were devised in the AARC project. This webinar is aimed at Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) architects and technical decision makers for research collaboration.

Why did AARC extend RAF?

The REFEDS Assurance Framework was explained in a previous webinar.

The AARC (Authentication & Authorisation for Research & Collaboration) project developed additional guidance to facilitate the exchange of assurance information across infrastructures (or between SP-IdP-Proxy components of infrastructures).

Supplementary AARC and IGTF assurance profiles targeting the specific research and infrastructures’ needs in terms of risk profiles help out: shared assurance profiles inspired by the Service Provider and infrastructure requirements can be exchanged directly and help evaluate identity assurance information for the attributes and authenticator presented both by the user’s home organisations via the R&E federations and from supplementary sources when enabling federated access to access services.

In this webinar:

  • We will explain how AARC developed extensions to the RAF and what this means in practice;
  • we will show how different assurance profiles can be evaluated and combined together;
  • we will demonstrate how the assurance evaluation and combination can be implemented in a proxy based infrastructure;
  • you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
  • The webinar will be recorded and made permanently available via the IAM Online YouTube channel from AARC, REFEDS, GÉANT, InCommon and Internet2.
