The Attributes for Collaboration and Federation Working Group will:
Develop (and Execute if time permits) a Roadmap for Adoption of Attribute Release Policies (using the draft Steering Roadmap as a starting point)
Outreach [Steering] - Identify the needed stakeholder groups, and identify or create the content and use cases that can educate those groups.
Survey [Working Group] - Possible survey of the community on why attributes are NOT being released - identify obstacles (maybe webinar?) - completed by campus stakeholders as well as IAM person.
Consent [Working Group] - Determine where “Consent” fits into the roadmap
Communication [ALL] - Create a communication plan to inform InCommon Participants of recommendations and steps being taken to enable basic federated access
Recommend a default Attribute Release Policy (ARP) for InCommon participants
Global R&S for R&S SPs (See: Research and Scholarship Category and the R&S Attribute Bundle)
Recommended ARP for all other SPs - in addition to, or a subset of, R&S
Review and enhance online content for IdP admins so they have a clear set of steps to follow to implement the desired approach (including possibly consent) once campus policy decisions have been approved.
Discuss making some level of attribute release (e.g. R&S) part of a future version of the AAC’s Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federations.
Other collaborative efforts:
with TIER software packaging and InCommon Ops to give stakeholders some control via a set of tools (e.g. local - similar to consent; new IC services (eg suggested Attribute Release Policies); etc)) to simplify and automate attribute release management. This may be part of the Roadmap, but likely executed by TIER software packaging.
with AACRAO members looking at Student Records and Data Disclosure.
