Within the Identity Federation SWAMID is trust that universities, university colleges and other members manage users and logins good enough the foundation for Service Providers to be confident that it is the right user that is accessing the system. To define what is good enough SWAMID has decided on two Assurance Profiles for Identity Providers and their users.
The Assurance Profile SWAMID AL2 means three things:
- Extension of SWAMID AL1.
- The Member Organisation has more positively identified the user, this is also known as a confirmed user.
- The information associated with the user account is the Member Organisation responsible for.
Current Assurance Profile SWAMID AL2:
When applying for SWAMID AL2, the Member Organisation must supply with the application:
- Assurance Declaration for SWAMID AL2 through an Identity Management Practice Statement describing how the Member Organisation fulfils the Assurance Profile.
- All documents, or link to the publicly published documents, referred to in the Assurance Declaration.
SWAMID Audits the Member Organisation based on the Assurance Declaration.
