Gluu Federation Registry Service

Michael Schwartz September 3, 2013

Using the Gluu Server, your organization can host a local federation. Watch the video Gluu Multi-Party SAML Federation Demo: OX Open Source if you’d like to see more. But this approach to managing a federation is very simple. If you want to host a large federation, you will need to do more. For this reason, Gluu launched a more comprehensive federation management service, detailed below.

Public Site

  • Background
  • Sample Federation Charter, Participation Agreement, Usage Banner
  • Protocol and Software Guidelines
  • Guidelines of Identity Providers
  • Guidelines for Relying Parties, websites or native applications
  • SAML Attribute Schema definitions / OpenID Connect user claim definitions
  • How to Join the Federation
  • List of the Participants (IDPs on the left, RPs on the right)
  • Federation acr parameters for authentication mechanisms


Federation Registry Hosting

  • Deployment of Jagger Federation Registry platform
  • Website (SP) registration, management, and support (for participants)
  • IDP registration, management and support (for participants)
  • Admin features for federation management (available only to FR admin)
  • Support for up to two hosted federations: one test, one production
  • Updates to the FR software as requested
  • Monitoring / SLA reporting for the host and FR web server
  • Strong authentication to the FR


Federation Operation
