InCommon Federation Metadata Toolchain

This repository contains some of the tooling used by the InCommon Federation to:

  • Import metadata from the eduGAIN interfederation service, including filtering and transforming that metadata to meet InCommon's needs.

  • Generate per-entity metadata for publication through the Metadata Query protocol.

This tooling draws heavily on that used by the UK federation as published on GitHub. The upstream branch of this repository mirrors the master branch from that repository, and useful upstream changes are often merged in here.

The remainder of this file is the original from the upstream repository.

UK federation Metadata Toolchain
