The Federated Identity Management (FIM) community has been creating a group of requirements for Identity Providers of Last Resort (IdPoLR / IoLR). These Identity Providers would be used by Service Providers when one or more users do not have access to authentication/ authorization credentials via their home institution. This document compares the requirements defined by two efforts 1) 2015 InCommon IdPoLR Working Group Final Report, and 2) 2018 REFEDS IoLR Working Group Declaration and Self-Assessment form. The development of this comparison was supported by ORCID.
