Good meeting, best turnout to date… Presentations are available on the website. The interaction with OASIS was a positive aspect - they were a sponsor and participated in panels.
Movement on the RADIUS and RadSec fronts - a BoF on federated roaming was well attended. NEA seems to be nearing consensus to use SAML for the transport of NEA assertions.
Federated and large scale ESB conversations, including employing a large scale ESB to support a "global routes registry" as well as supply chain management. See Leif's blog for more info.
* Upcoming Meetings*

- Shib CAMP
June 2008, Ann Arbor MI
Planning is well under way for this Shib 2.0 installfest, and there will be a "train the trainer" track. Given the high interest in this aspect there will be a different registration process to ensure geographic diversity among other criteria to ensure the broadest possible impact. InCommon executive liaisons will be contacted to determine potential interest.
May 14-16 2008, Ann Arbor MI
May 18 2008, Bruges, Belgium
June 18, 2008, Minneapolis MN
Agenda is online.
June 19-20, 2008, Minneapolis MN
Merge of ESB and Service Registry will be the focus.
Mon-Wed June 2-4 in Seattle is the target, but not yet confirmed. More to come on this as it develops. Goal is recruit those building state and international federations to participate to the extent possible. Focus will be on policy issues, although some technical underpinnings will likely be included.
June 23-27, 2008, San Diego CA
RL "Bob" will be attending…
There will be a whitepaper distributed in advance addressing issues in IdM for registrars.
9-10 Jul 2008, Umeå, Sweden
- Shibboleth 2.0 has been formally released. Congratulations to the Shibboleth team for a job well done. Discussion now turns to next steps.
- Final Approval: MACE-Dir SAML attribute profile doc
[AI] (RL "Bob") will send out a last call mail.
With change bars:
- Internet2 strategic planning
See the wiki for the latest documents:
There will be a draft circulated publicly in advance of the Spring Internet2 Member Meeting for feedback and comment.
- Fluid UI
Mellon-funded UI project, we held a call last week to discuss potential applicability to Shibboleth and Grouper. There will be a number of follow-ups and more news as it develops.
- Croquet AuthN/Z
There is some interest among the Croquet project in integrating AuthN/Z for this non-web application, and we held a call last week to explore synergies and opportunities to work together. There will be follow-ups and more news as it develops. One possibility discussed was for the app to be an InfoCard client. SAML is also a possibility, and the question of future Shibboleth support for non-web apps arose.
An InCommon-Croquet interest group has been formed, with a mailing list and wiki space under InC-Collab.
[AI] (All MACE) interested in participating contact SteveO.
- ISoc "Trust in the Internet" Initiative
Lucy Lynch will be at the I2MM, and at the MACE/Salsa dinner.
- DKIM in Higher Ed
in the context of the ISoc trust effort, DKIM is a potential area of interest early on. The adoption rate is a subject of uncertainty…
There is a new higher-ed IM administrator list, which will likely address federated IM.
