This IAM Online is all about identities and identity providers, with the broad theme of making it easier for both campuses and individuals to participate in the InCommon Federation. To join, click here  You will hear from the following InCommon TAC work groups:

Alternative IdPs Working Group - This group has assessed in-house and outsourced strategies for deploying an IdP (including a helpful decision tree) and recommendations for future InCommon work as it strives to make things easier for campus deployers. For more information, click here

External Identities Working Group - This group is exploring how to make external identities (e.g., from Google, Microsoft, or UnitedID) useful and sufficiently trusted, as well as the potential to link an external identity with a campus identity. They have looked at types of identities, use cases, and issues to consider for those needing some sort of external identity. For more information, click here

IdP of Last Resort Working Group - This group is exploring options for those who are not represented by a campus IdP or whose IdP will not release the necessary attributes. This group is documenting the requirements for any potential IdP of Last Resort, develop case studies, and explore tradeoffs between this concept and the use of external identities. For more information, click here

New Entities Working Group - This group is preparing for InCommon’s participation with eduGAIN and interfederation. Operationalization of eduGAIN will add IdPs and SPs that are members of other federations, and some regional network operators would like to add new types of entities (such as K-12) to the metadata. This group is exploring the policies and practices needed in an interfederated world. For more information, click here
