 SWITCHaai is the Shibboleth-based identity federation of the Swiss
 academic and research sector. The project started 10 years ago as a
 cooperation between SWITCH, the national research and education
 network, and the Swiss universities. Today, 97% of all academic users
 and several hundred web-based services are part of the federation. The
 talk gives a technical overview of federated identity, describes the
 Shibboleth approach and the current technical, operational as well as
 organizational setup of SWITCHaai. It provides a perspective into the
 current development trends of secure access technologies, including
 extensions to Shibboleth as well as an outlook into other technologies
 such as OpenID and OAuth.
 Christoph Witzig is the team leader of the middleware group at SWITCH,
 the national research and education network of Switzerland. He holds a
 degree in high energy physics from ETH Zurich and worked for several
 years at CERN and Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY. He held
 various positions in the commercial sector before joining SWITCH in
 spring 2005.
