Understanding the Participant Operating Practices: The Purpose of the POP

Track Speaker Team
Resources:
Slides from Paul Caskey[PPT]

Creating a "community of trust" among InCommon participants is an overarching goal of the federation -- based on robust and trustworthy identity information. The Participant Operational Practices (POP) document is key to achieving this goal. Each member organization maintains a POP to outline its identity management and/or service systems. This session introduces the POP, explains why it is important and offers examples. We will also disucss basic identity management infrastructure needed to federate, related stakeholder relationships, and  introduce the InCommon Identity Assurance Profiles.

In addition, group discussion will focus on the challenges of describing attributes in a common language, exploring which attributes were chosen for initial implementations, and the policy required to grant authority to the end user.
