The Australian Access Federation (AAF) will link Australian higher education and research institutions together in a single trust federation to facilitate trusted electronic communications and collaboration. In order for this federation to operate successfully, agreement must be reached on the data schemas to be used with the federation, especially data schemas describing identities. The AUeduPerson Working Group has been tasked with drafting and recommending data schemas for the AAF based on the community’s requirements. This presentation will describe: - What is a data schema - Issues to consider in developing an identity data schema - Schemas used in other federations, including eduPerson, UKeduPerson, and SwissEduPerson - Efforts to make schemas interoperable - Approach taken by the auEduPerson Working Group - Progress of the auEduPerson Working Group
