InCommon MFA Interoperability Profile Working Group

The mission of the working group is to develop and document requirements for creating and implementing an interoperability profile to allow the community to leverage MFA provided by an InCommon Identity Provider by allowing SPs to rely on a standard syntax and semantics regarding MFA. See the working group wiki space.

Guidance for Supporting SHA-2 Signed Assertions

In August 2014, InCommon released Migrating to SHA-2 to help certified campuses support SHA-2 signed assertions.

In June 2014, InCommon Steering approved the (now expired) "Alternative Means for Bronze and Silver Requirement to Discontinue SHA-1 Encryption for SAML Assertions" to ease the transition for Identity Provider Operators that had been certified by the InCommon Assurance Program or were wishing to apply for certification by January 15, 2015.

The Multi-Context Broker (MCB) was released in February of 2014 to improve support for multi-factor authentication and assurance profiles in version 2.x of the Shibboleth IdP.  MCB functionality is also in the more recent Shibboleth IdP version 3.x.  See Multi-Context Broker for more more background and information on how to configure and deploy the MCB for either version of the Shibboleth IdP.
