Ops Update

Complete ops update here.

Domains in Endpoint Locations Proposal - Tom Scavo reported on a recommendation of a new policy - that all IdP endpoint locations should be owned by the organization associated with the IdP. He has developed a wiki page documenting this proposed policy. (AI) TAC members are asked to review on comment on this wiki page.

The new policy means that the InCommon RA would no longer verify domains in endpoint locations in either IdP metadata or SP metadata.The InCommon RA will continue to verify domains in entityIDs in both IdP metadata and SP metadata, and will continue to verify Scopes in IdP metadata. (AI) Tom Scavo will develop documentation related to SP endpoint locations and expects to have that ready for the March 30 TAC meeting.

Incident: Multiple Attempts to Publish Metadata on March 10 - Tom Scavo reported on this incident, which involved eduGAIN operations altering the order of entities in eduGAIN metadata. This caused a 40MB DIFF file being published, which uncovered the bug. InCommon published three signed aggregates on March 10. See: Incident Report 2017-03-10

Trust and Identity Update

There are three open job positions in Internet2 Trust and Identity. Status: Developing hiring teams for each.

TAC Email List Discussion

Proposal: Create a technical-discuss@incommon.org list for technical discussions and to request and take feedback on various topics. TAC members will be subscribed to the list and will be expected to seed topics requiring community discussion. The TAC work plan may be the first topic. The list will also be a place to announce when TAC minutes become public.

(AI) Dean Woodbeck will create a new technical-discuss@incommon.org email list.

(AI) Mark Scheible and Brett Beiber (chairs of TAC and AAC) will jointly announce the creation of the technical-discuss email list.

TIIME Conference

There was a short discussion of the synopses of the TIIME conference provided by Tom Barton and Nick Roy. It was noted that a number of the issues discussed at the conference align with the TAC work plan. There was also a short discussion about the merits of considering “IdP as a Service,” with the Australian federation’s “rapid connect” as a possible model.
