InCommon also operates a related assurance program, and offers certificate and multifactor authentication services.

Congratulations to our Friends at LIGO

Big news from LIGO on the discovery of gravitational waves, proving part of Einstein's theory of relativity. We're proud to have played a small part by providing the federated identity infrastructure, which LIGO has used since 2011. LIGO also uses the advanced Internet2 network for data traffic, and the Shibboleth, Grouper, and COmanage software.

IAM Online February 17: Registries and Records: The Ties that Bind an IAM System

Join us for the next IAM Online (Weds, Feb. 17, at 2pm ET) and learn about the experiences of two universities implementing central registry systems -- and how those systems form the backbone of their identity and access management systems. What are the business and policy concerns that drive the implementation of a central registry system? How do you ensure consistent and accurate data about individuals when that information might come from multiple locations and sources? How does this impact (and integrate) with such business systems as PeopleSoft, Workday, and others? How you can treat the registry as a master data hub and canonical source for person and other entity data. See the details and plan to join!
