The Future Internet as a design conception is network and service-aware addressing social and economic trends in a service oriented way. In the Future Internet, applications transcend disciplinary and technology boundaries following interoperable reference model(s). In this paper we discuss issues about federated management targeting information sharing capabilities for heterogeneous infrastructure. In Future Internet architectures, service and network requirements act as design inputs particularly on information interoperability and cross-domain information sharing. An inter-operable, extensible, reusable and manageable new Internet reference model is critical for Future Internet realisation and deployment. The reference model must rely on the fact that high-level applications make use of diverse infrastructure representations and not use of resources directly. So when resources are not being required to support or deploy services they can be used in other tasks or services. As implementation challenge for controlling and harmonising these entire resource management requirements, the federation paradigm emerges as a tentative approach and potentially optimal solution. We address challenges for a future Internet Architecture perspective using federation. We also provide, in a form of realistic implementations, research results and solutions addressing rationale for federation, all this activities are developed under the umbrella of federated management activity in the Future Internet.
