  • One of CACTI’s FIM4R recommendations  was  "Assessments of the Internet2 trust and identity solutions be performed at predetermined intervals"
  •  ChrisP developed a spreadsheet to start  a fall Trust and Identity review
  • Chris encourages all CACTI members to contribute to the spreadsheet
  •  Thoughts and insights are welcome on structure and format. Feel free to contribute a comment (or question) in the strawman doc or add in a topic or item you don’t see.
  • Needle has moved somewhat since the initial recommendations
  • BaseCAMP (August 2019 in Milwaukee)  fit into the goal  (“Expertise in the use and implementation of these solutions in the field should be cultivated”). BaseCAMP can be seen as one accomplishment

Collaboration as a Service

  • Regarding the Priority Recommendation: Invest in Areas to Support Collaboration-as-a-Service, what is the activity around this?   
  •  Is there movement towards COmanage as a Service? 
    • CILogon has some features of collaboration as a service, but CILogon has limited subscribership.   
    • SteveZ: CACTI needs to define in what form Collaboration as a service should exist 
  • Suggestion to add info on where resources should be applied to advance each particular effort. 
  •  AARC Blueprint is a foundation, there are multiple implementations, including eduteams , CILOGON , SATOSA
  • COmanage is one approach.
    • COmanage  is not turnkey, enrollment flows must be defined, for example
  • CACTI does not want to be in position of selecting winners and losers among “Collaboration as a Service” services and tools
  •  The Component Architects are looking at suggesting architectural patterns. 
    • Hope to reduce number of variables for the community as the community has requested this.
    • Guidance is taken from the Collaboration  Success Program experience.
    • Grouper Deployment Guide is a good example of providing guidance for the community.
    • Hope to provide other similar guidance documents for other elements of the architecture

  • OIDC
