FICAM has released a 2.0 version of their spec as of early February 2014the FICAM spec.
Trust framework providers, such as InCommon, have 6 months to comply with the new FICAM spec. InCommon will talk w Anil on Feb. 14 to share thoughts about FICAM 2.0. We had previously submitted comments in writing.The 6 months for compliance applies to InCommon but not to IdPs. We don't know what this means for our IDPs. We We are starting discussions to see what is the impact of FICAM 2.0 to the InCommon Assurance program and the community.
The question came up about what are the service providers they are FICAM will be working with first? The Veterans Admin is the biggest a big one.
Most We are aware that many campuses don't want their faculty and staff leverage their campus credentials to interact w consumer based services like the VA
They want to use their credentials for grant submissions and teaching resources or dept of Ed resources.
So we are trying to find out from FICAM, what is the ETA for the services that are more related to higher ed?
The answers to these questions will help the AAC determine how to support FICAM 2.0
