Advanced Policies Management for the Support of the Administrative Delegation in Federated Systems

Current identity management systems are experiencing an increasing workload of their administrators in the management of the system policies, mainly derived from the sheer amount of policies they have to create and maintain. This problem is even more relevant in federated environments, where roaming users force them to authenticate and authorize people coming from other institutions. In this context, it is increasingly necessary to adopt new advanced policies for the administrative delegation, which allow balancing this workload among several delegates who will in turn have a much wider knowledge in the application area where these policies will be applied.
