The identity management domain is a huge research domain. The federated systems proved on theirs legibility to solve a several digital identity issues. However, the problem of interoperability between federations is the researcher first issue. The researchers final goal is creating a federation of federations which is a large meta-system composed of several different federation systems. The previous researchers’ technical interoperability approach solved a part of the above-mentioned issue. However, there are some-others problems in the communication process between federated systems. In this work, the researcher target the semantic interoperability as a solution to solve the exchange of attribute issue among heterogeneous federated systems, because there is a significant need of managing the users’ attributes coming from different federations. Therefore, the researcher proposed a semantic layer to enhance the previous technical approach with the aim to guarantee the exchange of attribute that has the same semantic signification but a different representation, all that based on a mapping and matching between different anthologies. This approach will be applied to the academic domain as the researcher application domain.
