New SAFIRE Cost Structure from May 2019

In terms of section 3.3.2 of the SAFIRE Participation Agreement, TENET — as the Federation Operator — hereby gives notice of a new cost structure with effect from 1 May 2019.

The new cost structures for the SAML technology profile were approved by the SAFIRE steering committee at their December meeting, and are now detailed on SAFIRE’s web pages. Separate costs apply for SAML identity providers and SAML service providers, and these are listed under each provider type’s “fees” page.

The net effect of the new cost structure is that all existing participants of the federation will continue to enjoy the benefits of the federation without additional charge. However, from the effective date, some new service and identity providers will become liable for costs as detailed in the fees document.
