InCommon and the broader Research and Education sector have significant reason to pay close attention to the standards used by our partners within the U.S. government. This type of standard has the potential to shape electronic identity assurance for many years to come, and our alignment and interoperability with these standards are critical to collaborating with government sectors and beyond our own geographical borders.
Additionally, the Research and Education communities have continued to increase identity assurance through the MFA Interoperability Profile, Baseline Expectations, Entity Categories, and SIRTFI. We have a significant body of work and experience to offer our fellow identity professionals, and the responsibility to ensure that our paths are aligned as much as possible.
The InCommon Assurance Advisory Committee will provide the Community Consultation feedback to NIST before the March 31st deadline.
