New Working Groups Addressing Potential InCommon Services

Interested in new programs and services under development at InCommon?
Community working groups provide the energy and much of the work to move
these services and policies forward. Join us for this IAM Online to learn
about the launching of several such groups, the topics and problems to be
addressed, and how you can get involved.

Topics will include:

• international interfederation - a way to provide and promote
international collaboration
• use of external identities (e.g., credentials provided by an
organization other than the university, such as Google or Facebook)
• alternative identity providers - exploring
other-than-traditional deployments of identity providers as a way to make
federating easier
• use cases for types of entities in metadata - that is,
entities that may not be owned or controlled by InCommon participants (such
as gateways or a regional provider managing services for a K-12 district)
• development of an “IdP of Last Resort,” which provides a way
for an individual to access federated services even if his or her institution
has not deployed an identity provider

If you operate an IdP or SP in InCommon, one or more of these areas are sure
to affect you.
