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.

- 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.
