​New Year’s resolutions by and for the identity federation community ​


​​​It's the time of year when we all start making New Year's resolutions. To start off 2016 with some good intentions, the REFEDS (research and education federations) community has devised six resolutions. These are based on the top priorities identified by federation operators via a REFEDS poll, and they represent the actions needed to meet the requirements of service providers and of users of federations worldwide.  


The resolutions are:

  • Implement the research and scholarship entity category

  • Upgrade software

  • Stop using SAML1

  • Participate in eduGAIN

  • Improve discovery 

  • Use the code of conduct​

More detailed information and supporting documentation for each resolution is available. The REFEDS 2016 New Year's resolutions can be found online or downloaded as pdf or jpg via https://refeds.org/resolutions
