An InCommon Webinar

Connect via Zoom:

Does your organization need help, or additional information, about meeting Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation? InCommon will host this webinar to provide information and resources for those that have yet to meet Baseline Expectations. The Baseline Expectations deadline is December 14, 2018.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • A recap of Baseline Expectations, the purpose, and the December 14 deadline

  • A look at the metadata elements that seem to cause the most questions - logo URLs and privacy URLs

  • An overview of the Federation Manager, and why adding or changing contact information won’t break anything

  • Next steps for meeting Baseline Expectations

In addition, InCommon will host weekly office hours starting Thursday, October 25. Staff members will be available to answer specific answers or concerns. We will provide details during the webinar.
