Now that the InCommon community has adopted Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation, certain Federation policy and legal changes are taking place, including changes to the InCommon Participation Agreement (the legal agreement) and the Federation Operating Policies and Practices. Also, meeting Baseline Expectations may raise policy or operational questions for some Participant organizations.
This presentation on March 7 is designed for senior management with responsibility for IAM functions and related policy together with those who directly supervise that function.
We’ll lay out potential policy questions you may need to help address and place those into the larger context of how that helps the entire Federation be an excellent platform for academic collaboration.
