When an organization joins InCommon, we do a lot to
- verify that the company or school, for instance, actually exists and agrees to the community legal structure, the foundation of the Federation,
- ensure that the people representing the organization actually do represent it and
- provide secure ways for participants to provide information about the services they want in the trust registry.
Why is this important? You need to rest assured that the services you’re providing are being accessed by the right individuals. That starts with mapping the physical to the electronic world.
