Welcome to the InCommon Assurance Program Collaboration Site.

This site will house information about the InCommon Assurance specifications, implementation, and program. The primary documents are:

  • [Identity Assurance Assessment Framework|http://www.incommon.org/docs/assurance/IAAF_V1.1.pdf] \[InCCollaborate:PDF\]
  • [Identity Assurance Profiles|http://www.incommon.org/docs/assurance/IAP_V1.1.pdf] \[InCCollaborate:PDF\]

On June 9, the US Federal Government’s Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Trust Framework Evaluation Team (TFET) provisionally approved the InCommon Assurance documents. We are now working on adding their privacy recommendations with the goal of have these documents finally approved shortly.
