Recruiting new CTAB members  

CTAB Charter: http://doi.org/10.26869/TI.94.1

Brett emailed recruitment email (soon after this CTAB call). Recruitment posting on wiki is here: https://spaces.at.internet2.edu/x/9YBHC

  • Brett, Joanna and Ted complete terms in Dec 2018

  • If Ted is selected for another 3 year term on InCommon Steering, he could potentially continue on CTAB as the Steering Rep.  But it’s also healthy to get another Steering member familiar with the work of CTAB.

  • Joanna happy to help with recruiting.  Having an auditor on CTAB is helpful. ACUA http://www.acua.org/ACUA/College_University_Auditors.asp  is a good venue for outreach.  Joanna’s other professional circles.

  • Brett open to serving an additional term on CTAB


Service Provider Standards

  • Jack Suess, UMBC, sent email around service provider standards

    • Jack  wondered if we can increase value of federation

    • We need members participating at the fullest

    • Jack notes that now there are SPs on the participants list that are not up to standards

  • Ann had interesting conversation with a CIO at EDUCAUSE

    • All of the service providers for that campus adhere to BE except for 3.  The CIO would be happy to have them removed from metadata.

  • Before an SP could be removed, there will be questions on who registered the SP and who uses the service

  • We are currently sending the health check info to site admins and asking them to manage the SPs on their campus

  • This is right for the current stage.

  • When/if there is ever a recommendation to remove, we should escalate and communicate with the exec

  • It might help if we sent a stern letter for CIO to share with the non complying SPs? Hard to know, but during the dispute resolution process CTAB will exhaust all possibilities

  • There can be delegated site admins in federation manager

  • contacting the right person, the right SP admin, can be a challenge

  • We support delegated SP admins,  should we notify them of the health check issues? Perhaps bring this up on the Ops call?  Albert will follow up.

  • [AI] Albert will follow up on the topic of notifying delegated SP admins about health check issues

  • Next Steps on Service Provider Standards

    • Kevin notes that Internet2 Net+ is also looking at badging

    • InCommon TAC is looking at more interoperability between IdPs and SPs

    • From an organizational assurance/trust level, combine various metrics into a “stamp of approval”

    • Suggestion that CTAB formally request from InCommon Ops that they combine the different metrics into a consolidated list 

    • Coordination between InCommon TAC and CTAB on this issue would be helpful

    • [AI] (MC and Brett)  reach out to chairs of InCommon TAC about initial conversations around SP badging issues, and include AnnW and Albert in the conversations.

 Next CTAB call

  • Nov. 21, 2018 CTAB call will be cancelled due to Thanksgiving.
  • Make up CTAB call on Wed Nov. 28 at 4pm ET
