Trust and Identity/InCommon Ops Update

Baseline Expectations Update - As of yesterday

  • 88% of organizations meet BE

  • 92% of IdPs meet BE

  • 86% of SPs meet BE

  • 12 organizations have submitted extension requests (of the roughly 85 organizations that have yet to meet BE). CTAB will begin reviewing these after January 1.

Albert reported that he is working on a report that documents how InCommon staff are responding to the recommendations of two 2018 working groups - the Attributes for Collaboration in Federation Working Group and the Streamlining SP Onboarding WG. In addition, CACTI is developing a FIM4R gap analysis and will coordinate with TAC on items of common interest.

InCommon Committees and WGs - Intro for New Members

Albert presented a quick overview of InCommon and what it encompasses:

  • Federation

  • eduroam

  • Certificate Service

  • Training and Education

  • Community Development (working groups and committees) well as the governance and advisory committees, as well as the working groups charterd by both InCommon and Trust and Identity

2019 Working Group Planning

The TAC charters community working groups as a way to get work done. The TAC identifies a TAC sponsor who, in turn, identifies co-chairs for the WG. The TAC sponsor is responsible for chartering the group (scope and deliverables) and monitors how the work is going. This document provides the details of how the logistics work:

When a group concludes, the WG develops a final report, reports back to TAC on the results, and typically provides a summary to InCommon Steering. 

Potential WG for 2019 - need to prioritize

  • IdP as a Service - a draft charter exists - need to identify a TAC sponsor

  • SP Proxy - target - commercial SPs that don’t/can’t support multilateral federation. (AI) Eric Goodman will share the RFP that UCOP used in developing an SP Proxy service.

  • Federation 2.0 WG - a REFEDS WG - looking for participants. Tom Barton and Judith Bush are co-chairs. 

  • Participant “badging” - e.g. identifying SPs that are “InCommon ready” - information about a participant’s maturity, functionality, and operational capabilities. (AI) Albert will summarize the CTAB/TAC officer call that discussed this.

Kevin expressed his thanks to Mark for chairing TAC for the last two years, which has included moving to a new model for membership and electing the chair and vice-chair.
