Public Endpoint Entities Registry
Public Endpoint Entities Registry
PEER is envisioned as a lightweight, global registrar for SAML Metadata representing both SAML and non-SAML endpoints (e.g., OpenID, IMI). It is intended as a focused activity to catalyze international use of federated identity. The service is not intended to be a replacement for federation or inter-federation, but is intended to be a tool supporting such activities.

- Nagios integration by implementing a passive nagios agent that listen for Entity’s updates (creations, updates and deletions) and send them to a Nagios server.
- Remove PEER names. If the DisplayName is present it is used as the label for the entity. Otherwise, the entity id is used and if neither of them exists, the PEER numeric id is used.
- Improve the usability of the SAMLmetaJS editor by showing user errors as soon as possible and asking the user either to fix them or to remove the information that is giving trouble.
- Implement REMOTE_USER authentication with an easy to switch settings option. Also document the web server part of the setup.
- Update djangosaml2 dependency version. This uses newest pysaml2 version. As a consequence encrypted assertions and signed response and requests work better now. Djangosaml2 0.4.2 also adds logging support.
- Several changes to the SAMLmetaJS editor: - Support for IdP endpoints and certificates. - Support for EncryptionMethod in KeyDescriptors - Support for MDUI.PrivacyStatementURL and MDUI.InformationURL. - Many refactorings to improve code reuse. - Merge features from PEER 0.8.0 into SAMLmetaJS master branch.
- Show IdP information (endpoints and certificates) in the details view.
- Improve certificate rendering in the details view.
- Send emails to subscribers of entities when their endpoints are down.
- Allow to subscribe to entities for updates about their endpoints state.
- Refactor the views module of the entities application into a package which is easier to handle.
- Rich metadata support. Now it is possible to edit the logo and geolocalization hint of an entity. This feature is used to display richer multimedia information through PEER.
- Improve the metadata editor with request initiator and discovery response endpoint support. Also improve the localization plugin and add keywords and logo to the information plugin.
- Metadata refresh: if the entity id is a URL that points to the metadata itself the user can activate a periodic fetch of this metadata.
- Preview before commit: now the editing and commiting flows are separated by a modal dialog that ask for the commit message only when the changes are ready. In this dialog a diff of the current changes is available for easy reviewing.
- Git repositry co-existence: if there is already a Git repository with metadata files it can be reused in PEER by specifing the directory that PEER ‘owns’ inside this repository.
- Metadata grouping: a user can define an entity group by writing a query. A custom feed and map for this group are created automatically so following the changes for related entities becomes easier.
- Lots of bug fixes and documentation improvements.
- DNS-based domain validation
- Delegated domains: an administrator can validate a domain directly and create a team that can manage such domains as if they were the owners.
- Administration team: an administrator can add (and remove) other users to the administrators team giving them full powers in the system.
- Support for EntityAttributes SAML extension via a SAMLmetaJS new plugin.
- Attribute based restrictions. This mean, administrators can define which metadata attributes can be edited and which ones can’t be changed.
- Attribute based notifications a.k.a. advanced filters in the feeds.
- Usability improvements by adding several helpful messages to a lot of views.
- Federated authentication.
- Password reset for those of you with volatile memories.
- Several bug fixes.
- Make all public pages HTML5 compliant.
- When validating domains try also the www hostname.
- Big flashy button to get the latest version of an entity’s metadata.
- Add the possibility to specify a custom User Agent header for the domain ownership proof.
- When editing the metadata of an entity, warn the user that there are unsaved changes before he navigates to another page.
- Remove the metadata when removing the entity.
- Big documentation review and lots of improvements.
- More robust entity validation.
- Fix small layout problems as a result of changing the metadata edition UI from accordion to tabs.
- Fix IE lack of indexOf Array method.
- Update jQuery version.
- Show more information of each entity when listing entities.
- Big improvements in the easiness off deployment.
- Clean up the settings.py file from options specific to beta.terena-peer.yaco.es.
- More robust metadata edition
- Change metadata editors layout to use tabs instead of accordion UI.
- Add a most common domains filter and create the foundations of a filters infrastructure for future filters
- Update the SAMLmetaJS editor to the latest version upstream
- Warning emails when metadata is about to expire or already expired. Also display the expiration time in the UI.
- Add creation and modification timestamps for the entities.
- Entities feed, accesible from the homepage.
- Changes feed of an entity’s metadata.
- New metadata validators: they check that the metadata that was entered belongs to the domain of the entity.
- Disable the SAMLmetaJS editor for IE since it lacks the right XML parsing technology.
- After adding a new entity, redirect the user to the metadata edit view.
- Allow to remove domains.
- Lots of bug fixes and UI tweaks.
- Display the metadata in a nice format in the entity’s details view
- Display the history of metadata changes in the entity’s details view
- Organization plugin for the SAMLmetaJS editor
- Several fixes in the SAMLmetaJS editor.
- Entity protection. Only owners and users that are allowed to edit it can remove and edit an entity.
- Documentation improvements.
- User profile view redesign. Now it displays the entities that the user can edit even if the entities do not belong to a domain owned by the user.
- Search entities
- Branding customization support
- SAMLmetaJS integration for metadata edition
- Team permissions for rights delegation
- Usability and design improvements all over the application
- Lots of bug fixes
- Initial version which includes user registration, domain ownership proof, domain creation, entities creation, basic metadata edition and user invitation.
