FOPP & Participation Agreement modifications

  • Ann has made a new round of proposed updates to the FOPP and the InCommon Participation Agreement

  • AAC members are requested to please review the suggested changes to the FOPP and the PA again

FICAM Trust Framework Certification Process

  • There was a question to InCommon Steering regarding implications for those participants who have not upgraded to Shib v3

  • Potentially this Shib issue could fall under Security provisions of BE

  • But it is best not to rush Baseline Expectations dispute process to address the Shib v2/v3 issue

  • Perhaps eventually CTAB could come up with general guidelines of how far (how many month) out of date in upgrading important security measures a participant is allowed to be

  • Note: we already have an incident response practice
 which may be helpful in this area


  •  InCommon Operations is drafting a baseline expectations intent paper. Talks about strategic value and change management
  • Dean has scheduled 3 webinars on Baseline Expectations in Jan, Feb, and March 2018
