InCommon, operated by Internet2, provides a secure and privacy-preserving trust fabric for research and higher education institutions, and their partners, in the United States. InCommon serves nearly 6 million end-users through federated identity management.
in the InCommon Federation (“Federation”) enables a federation participating
organization ("Participant") to use Shibboleth identity attribute sharing
technologies to manage access to on-line resources that can be made available
to the InCommon community. One goal of
the Federation is to develop, over time, community standards for such
cooperating organizations to ensure that shared attribute assertions are
sufficiently robust and trustworthy to manage access to important protected
resources. As the community of trust
evolves, the Federation expects that participants eventually should be able to
trust each other's identity management
systems and resource access
management systems as they trust their own.
