InCommon is the leading trust federation in higher education today. Since its inception in 2004, InCommon has grown to support over 200 universities and their partners representing over four million faculty, students, and staff in higher education in the U.S. This briefing will provide an update on the future of InCommon and how the organization is positioning itself to continue to be a vital part of the nation’s middleware infrastructures to enable federated access to information and workflows. InCommon leverages the considerable work going on across our landscape at each institution in identity and access management and positions those investments to take advantage of federated access models, cloud service provisioning, and more. The presentation will share how InCommon’s growth is impacting the services it will need to provide to support all its participants.
