  1. eP(S)A Comparison Andrew Cormack Chief Regulatory Adviser, JANET(UK) Andrew.Cormack@ja.net

  2. History • eduPerson specification • Lists controlled vocabulary for affiliation • But some values are not defined • Mikael points out UK/FI use differs • Check other federations on Refeds wiki • And the news is...

  3. Mostly Good • Most values are used consistently • Member, faculty, student • Alum, affiliate, library-walk-in • At least as consistent as the real world • What is a student? Or a member? • When is an alumnus? • ...

  4. Some Bad • Staff • UK: anyone who works here • Everyone else: a worker who is not faculty • Employee • UK: a worker who is not faculty • Some others: anyone who works here • Some others: anyone with a contract • Some others: value not used

  5. What to do? • Add definitions, so it doesn’t get worse • Suggestions in paper, please discuss • MACE-DIR looking at this • Make it better? • UK looking at whether we can fix staff • Employee is probably broken • Beware of these in inter-federation • Watch out for other problems • Document them when you find them, please

  6. Does it Matter? • Maybe less than it appears • Many services only need member • E.g. Site licences • Some external services need enumerated lists • So broken values don’t matter • Use ePE (IdP enumerated) or ePPN (SP enumerated) • Some internal services need internal categories • So broken values don’t help • And don’t matter, because per-fed they are consistent • Do any cross-fed apps need staff & employee?
