Fischer International Offers Hosted Federation Service at No or Reduced Charge

Institutions considering outsourcing the management of their federated identity infrastructure can do so at no or reduced charge through Internet2's InCommon affiliate, Fischer International Identity. Qualified institutions receive two years Shibboleth Identity Provider (IdP) hosting with 24/7 management for up to 5,000 full-time equivalent students at no charge.

Fischer is also offering the service through regional networks, such as OARnet, which operates the Ohio broadband network for education, K-12 and state and local government, as well as IT infrastructure and innovative services. OARnet will be the first regional network to host the service. Fischer is currently undergoing the Internet2 NET+ Service validation process.

Here is the complete announcement. See the InCommon Affiliate Program website for more information about Fischer International and the InCommon Affiliate Program.
