  • On vacation, unable to attend the call today
  • Updated the Wiki page regarding OIDC RP as EntityDescriptor: OAuth2/OIDC metadata and OIDC Claims
    • The plan is to use EntityDescriptor (client_id is entityID), UIInfo (for instance client_name is UIInfo/DisplayName) and custom role descriptor. The table of claim/XML-element relationships and the initial draft of the XML schema can be found from the page.
    • The implementation still in progress: extended SAMLPeerEntityContext and SAMLMetadataContext are exploited by the actions.
