Thanks to the Swiss universities and SWITCH, Switzerland was one of the first countries in the world that operated a production federated identity management (FIM) infrastructure for the higher education and research community. This presentation gives an overview about the past, the present and a future outlook on SWITCHaai as well as eduroam, the two academic FIM infrastructures currently deployed in Switzerland. Since this is closely related to the future developments, another focus lies on the worldwide higher education FIM infrastructures and how they influence the Swiss FIM infrastructures.
