What is an Service Provider Organization (SPO)?

A federation member organization that provides one or more electronic information service(s) to the federation. Service Provider Organizations provide services to the federation via Service Provider, which are trusted software services. These SPs evaluate the set of Identity Provider attributes presented to them in a form that conforms to the GFIPM Web Browser User-to-System Profile [GFIPM U2S PROFILE], to determine what level of access to provide to each end user.
