Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation

The InCommon community has adopted the Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation to improve interoperability. Led by the InCommon Community Trust and Assurance Board, the community determined that a set of common expectations that all participants meet will:

  • provide a baseline for trust
  • make collaboration more predictable
  • ensure that the InCommon Federation’s strategic value to research and education continues to grow

The Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation are comprised of three brief sets of statements for: Identity Provider Operators (IdP), Service Provider Operators (SP), and the Federation Operator.

The community has also developed processes for maintaining and clarifying the Baseline Expectations, as well as a dispute resolution process. Summaries of those processes are available at the links below.
