InCommon, operated by Internet2, provides a secure and privacy-preserving trust fabric for research and higher education, and their partners, in the United States. InCommon operates an identity management federation, a related assurance program, and offers certificate and multifactor authentication services.
The InCommon Federation is the identity management federation for US research and education, and their sponsored partners. InCommon serves more than 6 million end users through federated identity management.
The InCommon Certificate Program provides unlimited certificates, for all of your domains, for one fixed annual fee. This includes SSL, extended validation, client (personal), and code signing certificates.
The InCommon Assurance Program certifies campuses and non-profit sponsored partners and research organizations that meet the requirements of InCommon Bronze and Silver assurance profiles. These practices determine the confidence in the accuracy of a user's electronic identity and help mitigate risk for the Service Provider.
IDM Integration, a company that helps customers build identity management solutions, has joined the InCommon Affiliate Program. The Affiliate Program provides the research and education community with a way to safely and efficiently connect with partners that can help build the necessary underlying infrastructure that supports federated identity and access management.
