TrackTrack 2 -- Lille Scene
DescriptionWAYF has recently developed a new platform for the handling of the federation's login traffic. The software was written in the Go programming language and launched in production in the spring of 2018. The platform implements a novel federation architecture, i.e. a hybrid between full-mesh and hub&spoke, and is operated in a containers-based server environment, a deployment technique new to WAYF. This talk intends to shed light on WAYF's new federation architecture and the first few months of operational experience.
