Work on the protocol started in Spring 2005 at the University of Chicago. VFER was generously funded through the Summer of Code program in summer of 2005, and supported by Internet2 throughout the academic year 2005-2006. During summer 2006, three new students began working with VFER as part of Google's Summer of Code 2006 program to add new features and to strengthen the existing implementation.
