By the SWAMID Policy the authority to interfederate resides with the SWAMID Board of Trustees. Contacts and information requests about interfederation agreements should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Optionally each upstream from SWAMID can be decorated to suit interfederation policy, such as the for instance the edugain metadata requirements.
Members of SWAMID are able to use the Identity Provider Discovery services provided by SWAMID. Services that participate in interfederation agreements with SWAMID SHOULD configure their discovery services to list SWAMID identity providers.
