  • The AAC is working to revise its charter to do more than manage the assurance process for certification.
  • The AAC is looking at what needs to be modified to increase trust within the federation.
  • This does not expand a lot the AACs charge. But it is broader than managing a process.
  • We have received lots of feedback (from our SP partners) on the lack of usefulness of the POP and the lack of Compliance. Some InCommon participants are not updating their POPs.
  • We have talked about decomposing the assurance profiles into trust marks to drive incremental progress within the federation.
  • The goal is to get people on the road to higher trust and higher assurance.
  • There is work at GA Tech on Trust Marks

Can address what we have heard from community about the POP and about MFA.

Would give more flexibiltiy.
