InCommon: Trust and Security

InCommon offers trust services to higher education institutions, research organizations, and their sponsored corporate partners. Services include InCommon Federation, the InCommon Assurance Program, the InCommon Certificate Service, and the InCommon Multifactor Authentication Program.

The first step toward taking advantage of any of these services and programs is to join InCommon; you can then implement federated identity management (no additional charge) or subscribe to one of our other services.

InCommon Federation

InCommon Federation
  • supports a common framework for trustworthy shared management of access to on-line resources
  • higher security, economies of scale, and many other benefits
  • single sign-on and privacy protection for users
  • identity providers authenticate, while service providers authorize
  • service providers no longer need to provision identity accounts

InCommon Certificate Service

InCommon Certificate Service
  • unlimited certificates, including SSL (including extended validation) certificates, client (ersonal) certificates, and code signing certificates
  • one fixed annual fee
  • includes certificates for all of your domains — including professional societies and athletic sites (.edu, .net, .org, .com)
  • Internet2 members receive a 25 percent discount

InCommon Assurance Program

InCommon Assurance
  • qualifying campuses will support requirements for consistent authentication and identity management
  • reducing risk for service providers by encouraging identity providers to adopt these structured requirements
  • particularly important for financial aid applications and federal research granting agencies
  • InCommon Bronze is roughly equivalent to confidence associated with a common Internet identity
  • InCommon Silver is similar to confidence required for financial transactions

InCommon Multifactor Authentication Program

InCommon Assurance
  • The InCommon/SafeNet program offers significant discounts on select smart cards and USB-format hard tokens for second-factor authentication
