Increasing Identity Assurance and Improving NIH Readiness
May IAM Online - Wednesday, May 12, 2021
2 pm ET | 1 pm CT | Noon MT | 11 am PT
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has publicized new requirements (MFA and Research & Scholarship attributes) for accessing its electronic Research Administration modules, but has also signaled coming changes to identity proofing and assurance for other applications; specifically using the REFEDS Assurance Framework (RAF v1) (https://www2.internet2.edu/e/66332/assurance/d7mhtd/501919263?h=vHWX2o4xLXELMdVH4ok6qODOR-LSvjRaaCGSHVdTkig).
As a result, the InCommon Assured Access Working Group (AAWG) has developed guidance for US higher-ed institutions on meeting the REFEDS Assurance Framework.
Join us for the May IAM Online to get a summary of the recommendations and begin working on your own campus on increasing your identity assurance, and meeting new requirements from NIH programs and services.
