Reminder of InCommon CAMP and ACAMP, Online, November 16-20, 2020

IAM Online

Baseline v2

Coming NIH requirements based on TechExtra Talk on Oct. 6, 2020

    • At the Oct. 6,  2020 TechExtra keynote and panel from NIH , there was emphasis on the need for organizations to support REFEDs MFA and entity categories.
      This will likely be part of BEv3. 
    • Some concern about whether commercial IDP providers will get on board.
    • A simple gateway or proxy may be needed.
    • The  IDP as a Service Working Group report will be presented to InCommon TAC soon.
      • This could provide a roadmap (bridging solution) for “nonconforming” IDPs. 
    • REFEDS MFA involves a runtime assertion. 
      • Microsoft does not support that. 
      • Could be worked around with a gateway. 
    • ChrisW: Government laptop with card would provide for REFEDS MFA, but mobile device would not. 
    • Less difficult to implement:
      • REFEDS assurance is an attribute release issue
      • R&S assertion  is part of SAML metadata
    • As part of work for the Attributes for Collaboration Working Group,  TomB found that most InCommon IDPs participate in a science gateway.
