Software: InCommon Trusted Access Platform

Internet2’s work in trusted access management was established in 2000 with the first of what would become 10 federal agency awards (nine from the National Science Foundation and one from the Department of Commerce), with Ken Klingenstein as principal investigator. Originally named the Internet2 Middleware Initiative and later TIER, the work addressed a broad range of topics, including integrated middleware, authentication and authorization, privacy management, and virtual organizations, cumulatively involving over a dozen collaborating member organizations and over $9.2M in federal funding. The software was also underwritten each year by Internet2 Membership contributions.
