Draft  Report to InCommon Steering to Close out Baseline Expectations Phase 1 

  •   There are two documents to be presented to InCommon Steering

    • 1. Exec summary  

      •   this will go to Document Repository

    • 2. InCommon Baseline Expectations Closeout plan, this is an Appendix listing orgs with entities not meeting Baseline Expectations

      • Broken into relevant categories

      • Recommended actions are based on risk level

      • There is also an Appendix with summary of outreach that has occurred

  • Decision:  on March 28, 2019 there will be an announcement that April 8 we are turning on enforcement of consequences for those not meeting Baseline Expectations  

  • April 15, 2019 we will announce to community the results of the InCommon Steering decision

  • May 15, 2019  will move to remove entities not meeting Baseline Expectations from metadata

  • For bilateral entities, will not remove from federation, but will notify the bilateral partners if we can find that info

  • Suggestion to add more detail in the closeout plan report around handling of bilateral entities

  • Question about using the term “closeout”; could sound too final since there are next phases of Baseline Expectations

  •  Decision: remove the word “final”

  • Should report be seen as coming from CTAB to InCommon Steering? Instead of from “ InCommon Ops and CTAB” YES, DONE

  • Risk Level to federation, in what context? We should  define this better . 

    • Risk to reputation? 

    • Risk of leaving these entities not meeting baseline? 

    • What is the downside to taking this entity out of metadata?  

    • Decision: change “risk” to “impact to the federation of recommended action 

    •  Albert made this change this

  • Best way to handle test IDPs that do not meet baseline? Suggestion to remove them

    • Albert reports that there is only one test IDP not meeting Baseline. Albert resolved that issue in the doc.

  •  Albert provided an overview of the rollback plan so if need be, it will be possible to place an entity back into federation. 

    • This addresses the risk that site admin sees entity in edit mode and can’t comply with BE, and we need to work to accommodate them.  

  • It was noted that SPs on the list of entities not meeting baseline is an area of concern

  • Suggestion to add info on which entities have not paid their InCommon invoice

  • [AI] Albert will add to the report info on which entities that have not met Baseline Expectations have not paid their InCommon invoice

  • Albert has started drafting notice about mandatory enforcement in Federation Manager and will share that and hopes to send tomorrow. 

  • Tom moved that CTAB approve the report. ChrisW seconded

  • All agreed.

  • There will be a pre-read ask  to InCommon Steering

  • Albert will draft slides for Monday April 1, 2019 InCommon Steering call 

Next CTAB Call: Wed. April 10, 2019
