The SWAMID federation is based on a technology independent policy, a set of assurance profiles and a set of technology profiles. These documents are available at www.swamid.se.
The SWAMID Policy defines an Identity Assurance Profile this way:
An Identity Assurance Profile describes levels of trust in claims and organisations. An Identity Assurance Profile allows a Relying Party to determine the degree of certainty of the identity of a Subject and its personal data. Identity assurance is to a large extent independent of the technology used to convey Claims of identity.
