Precursors to Technical Implementation

We have a short document, "InCommon Basics and Participating in InCommon," that includes a Federated Identity Management Checklist. If you are new to InCommon or to federated identity, this is a good place to start. This booklet includes information on the following topics:

  • Install/Configure SAML 2.0 Compliant federating software
  • Support the eduPerson Schema
  • Configure IdP attribute resolver for the appropriate sources
