COmanage is an effort by Internet2 to develop tools and resources that allow collaborative organizations to meet their objectives using key collaboration tools in a secure and effective framework.  By leveraging external (federated) identity management services, authentication and authorization of group members are handled in a single, efficient process that feeds from each member's home organization into the various applications (such as wikis, calendaring, and conferencing) that are available to all.

This wiki space is the companion to the COmanage website.

Information about the National Science Foundation - Software Development for CyberInfrastructure (NSF-SDCI) Bedrock award, which provided major funding to this project, is available here. See also the press release (from 2010) Internet2 Middleware Initiative Awarded NSF Grant to Enhance Science and Research Collaboration (pdf) and the NSF Award Announcement.

COmanage is participating in the TIER Initiative.


An Identity Management System (IdMS) designed for collaborative organizations.
