  1. A proposal to next steps (Draft) Version v0.3.1 IdP Selection WG

  2. Identified requirements • Input requirements identified in the IDP Selection MRD can be divided into 4 main categories : • Possibility for the SP to delegate the selection of the user's IDP to an ISA and express some criteria to be considered for that selection process. • Discovery of the user's preferred IDP(s) by ISAs. • Possibility for the ISA to obtain user's IDP(s) capabilities as well as other data (metadata). • GUI and UX guidelines for SP and ISA.

  3. Envisioned next step 1/2 • Delegate to the ISA • Extract from MRD all needed claims, both by IdP and by RP • Technical way to integrate the ISA on SP side using RP metadata (aim : same metadata for both ISA in the browser and in the network) • Discovery of the user's preferred IDP • Mainly internal to the ISA (to be assessed based on MRD) : should be described into an "ISA implementation guidelines" document (common guidelines for both ISA in the browser and in the network ?).

  4. Envisioned next step 2/2 • IDP's capabilities • Lacks in existing IdP metadata specifications already identified in the "Gap analysis" document : requires evolutions on these specifications. • E.g. • Supported authentication context by IDP • Logo and display name for each IDP • … • GUI and UX guidelines for SP and ISA. • Common guidelines for both ISA in the browser and in the network.

  5. Pending point to be discussed: which strategy ? • 3 possible models for an ISA in the network • The ISA as a facilitator : just allows the user to select the IDP and everything else is done directly between RP and IDP • The ISA as an IDP proxy, as defined in the Liberty/SAML specifications • the ISA acts on behalf of the SP and just convert flows from a protocol to an other if needed

  6. ISA as a facilitator1/2 • Functional view Some metadata only * Metadata exchange & IDP Selection Delegation IDP RP ISA Metadata exchange & Authentication delegation * e.g. for the IDP capabilities discovery

  7. ISA as a facilitator 2/2 • Technical view • ISA used only during the IDP choice • The ISA is not aware of the rest of the transaction • The RP must implement all protocols corresponding to the various IDP Identity Provider Relying Party ISA       Note : numbers  to  represent the order of the interactions.

  8. ISA is as an IDP proxy1/2 • Functionalview Metadata exchange & Authentication delegation. Metadata exchange & IDP Selection & Authentication delegation IDP ISA RP RP IDP

  9. ISA is as an IDP proxy 2/2 • Technical view User database • Protocol on link  and  can be any widely spread protocol. • As a proxy, the ISA must implement fully the chosen protocol(s) for links  and . • Possibly single protocol between ISA and RP • IDP doesn't have knowledge of the RP and vice versa. • In case of ISA failure, users can't access the RP anymore (or with complex failover mecanism) • Users must exist in the ISA database (needs provisioning) • Might be a problem for the RP to access to IDP APIs Identity Provider Relying Party ISA       Note : numbers  to  represent the order of the interactions. Note : depending on the protocol, links ,, and  may or may not go through the browser.

  10. ISA acts on behalf of the SP1/2 • Functionalview Metadata exchange & IDP Selection & Authentication delegation (acting on behalf of the real RP) Authentication delegation IDP RP ISA RP metadata Remote RP endpoints

  11. ISA acts on behalf of the SP 2/2 • Technical view • Protocol on links  and  can be any widely spread protocol. • As an intermediary, the ISA must implement fully the chosen protocol(s) for links  and . • Single protocol between ISA and RP • Opportunity to specify a simplified SSO profile of existing specs for steps  and  • In case of ISA failure, SP can use another one or no ISA.

Note : depending on the protocol, links ,, and  may or may not go through the browser.
