Use-Cases
Too many to work with all of them intensively at the same time
Focus on 3 use-cases initially
But we also keep in touch with other projects and provide
consulting/expertise ([email protected])
Criteria for use-cases:
Time frame, variety, reproducibility, existing SAML know-how,
contribution, feasibility, ...
Only web-based use-cases in context of eduGAIN
– Non-browser use-cases covered in GÉANT Moonshot pilot
Use-cases with heavy use of credential translation (e.g. X.509 to
SAML) postponed because we (still) lack knowledge there
