Topic: Federation standards#

Session 2, Room 2

  • Chair: Rob Baxter


  • What levels of standardisation do we need before we’ve got enough to be trustworthy?

  • What can we standardise?

  • Managed vs unmanaged (“ptp”) federation: DARE UK argues for the first; is it possible to achieve trust through the second?


  • Is about connecting services together. Connect TREs, data providers, users.

    • It stops before we go too much into architecture

  • Without standardisation of those services, connecting them is not that valuable

    • How do we enforce a standard to the existing TRE landscape? Which would make it?

  • Every month we are getting a new thing that says it is a federated standard
