The Grouper Deployment Guide builds on industry standards such as NIST SP 800-162, and a synthesis of community practice to provide the terminology, concepts and strategies necessary to deploy and operate an effective InCommon Trusted Access Platform Grouper installation.
The overall strategy and access models described in this guide can be applied to a wide set of access governance requirements. However, the guide does not cover all possible uses of Grouper or even its complete feature set.
Be sure to review Grouper community contributions and Grouper use cases by category for additional examples of how to effectively use Grouper. Also, please share information on your institution's Grouper deployment to enhance this important library of user stories. See the community contributions wiki page for details on how to share your Grouper story.
This guide will naturally evolve along with community practice and as Grouper’s capabilities improve.
