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.
