Have a few tough questions relating to access management? Want to find out how your friends at other organizations are solving them? Want a crash course in InCommon Federation or open-source identity and access management software?

InCommon BaseCAMP (August 13-15, 2019, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) will use a workshop atmosphere to answer those questions. We have an experienced faculty of community members that will answer your questions and share solutions that work. Here are some highlights

  • Identity Management in 1.75 Hours Tom Jordan, the identity and access management lead architect at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and also one of the key architects of the InCommon Trusted Access Platform software.
  • Federation is a Team Sport – When everyone does their part, all of our users – that is faculty, staff, and students – are the winners. Speakers will include Steve Barnet from the IceCube project (, longtime community leader Tom Barton (University of Chicago), and Rachana Ananthakrishnan from Globus.
  • Minds On! Sessions to cover key concepts and hands-on issues: outsourcing your identity provider (user experience expert Mary McKee from Duke), Packaged Shibboleth software (Paul Caskey, longtime Shibboleth instructor), and how CILogon can benefit you and your researchers (Jim Basney, National Center for Supercomputing Applications research scientist and operator of CILogon, an IAM platform serving the sciences).
