Request for Information on Identity Management Solutions (RFI)

The community of Swiss higher education wants to bring federated identity management to the next level. Therefore SWITCH is working on a new centralized and user-centric identity management solution, available to higher education and third-party service providers, across organizational boundaries.

To clarify strategic design options and the best way to go forward, SWITCH initiates a Request for Information (RFI) today. Interested vendors or integrators find here the RFI document which also includes important administrative information.

Deadlines:

  • Questions about the RFI must be sent by e-mail to swisseduid@switch.ch until Tuesday, 11 November 2014
  • Clarifications will then be sent in an anonymised form to all RFI participants by 14 November 2014
  • Participating companies are kindly asked to hand in their answers by e-mail to swisseduid@switch.ch until Friday, 28 November 2014

Based on the insight gained from the RFI responses, SWITCH may hand in a project request to actually be able to acquire and build the new system.
