The Australian Access Federation and uApprove

The Australian Access Federation is focused on standards in delivering a federation that is capable of moving forward as the technology advances. The AAF is progressively moving IdPs and SPs to the latest Shibboleth V2.x software and is currently recommending the use of uApprove from the SWITCHaai Federation for positive user consent. uApprove is expected to be incorporated into future version releases of Shibboleth. Unfortunately, uApprove fails to comply with all of Australia’s privacy legislation and requirements.

This paper looks the AAF technical project that has been instigated to advance uApprove so it provides a platform that complies with Australia’s privacy legislation.
