Kareis also said she expects the federation model to move to SAML 2.0
sometime in early calendar year 2007.

The move will come just after GSA awards a contract for the Managed
Validation Translation Service, which lets users with a public-key
infrastructure certificate step down and use applications that require only
a Level 1 or Level 2 SAML assertion. Kareis said GSA is performing the
technical evaluation.

As part of the move to SAML 2.0 and the MVTS contract, GSA will hold a
strategic planning session later this month to ensure the federation is
evolving quickly enough and moving in the right direction, Kareis added. ³We
canıt afford to be static,² she said. ³We need to evolve to meet our agency
customer needs.²
