NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure and InCommon

InCommon-specific requirement for NSF CC* proposals

Submitting an NSF CC* proposal?

Make sure you meet the NSF’s InCommon requirements!

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has InCommon-specific language in the CC* (Campus Cyberinfrastructure) solicitations:

The plan should include the campus status and plans with respect to federated identity and specifically InCommon, including: if the campus is registered with InCommon as supporting the Research and Scholarship (R&S) Entity Category to streamline integration with research applications, and if the campus meets the InCommon Baseline Expectations for Trust in Federation.

These requirements help ensure that campus researchers can successfully use their campus credentials to access research- related services without needing to create accounts at each service.
