Policy and Legal Considerations for Interfederation

Why did InCommon change the Participation Agreement and Federation Operating Policies and Practices (FOPP)? How do these changes affect my organization? What are the policy considerations as I consider these changes, and interfederation overall? We'll answer these questions, common questions that have come up in the first 30 days of the notification sent to all organizations, and the questions you bring to the webinar.

IAM Online: The Future of Federation

The InCommon Federation celebrated its 10th anniversary last year and has taken a "birthday snapshot" of InCommon's 800 participants. Reviewing the results in preparation for the next 10 years shows smaller schools and small companies driving growth, a need to "go global," and an interest in incorporating new segments like K-12 schools.

Join us for this IAM Online that will share how the demographics of InCommon have changed and thoughts on serving existing and future participants. Topics will include:

  • Demographics - the changing mix of InCommon participants
  • InCommon Goes Global - how eduGAIN links federations around the world into one big interfederation
  • Incorporating K-12 - working with state research and education networks to broaden federation and trust opportunities
  • Plans for the future - using the data and the reports of recent working groups to plot the course for InCommon and the services and support that we offer.
