[AI] (Ken) will circulate some meeting notes from the recent TERENA/REFEDS meetings.
May 13-15, Indianapolis IN
Ken, Tom, and Michael attended. Shared services were a focus, including but not limited to cloud computing. Next steps resulting include investigation into a legal framework for standing up a new 501(c)3 organization(s) as a home for current or future R&E service or SW development efforts. DuraSpace was cited as an example, a recently announced collaboration between Fedora Commons and the DSpace Foundation.
May 15-16, 2009, Cork, Ireland
This is shaping up to be similar in focus to Base Camps, focusing on campus infrastructure, but with an emphasis on federation. Penn State's CIO will be attending.
May 18-20, 2009. Mountain View, CA
Bob attended. There was a session about OAuth as a service access method. Google has enabled OpenID providers on all of their hosted domains, although it is not entirely clear yet how a campus would take advantage of it.
- REFEDs - 3rd International Federation Peering Workshop
June 7, 2009, Málaga, Spain
There was good discussion, and ISOC and OAuth were represented. There was an update from the JISC Legal Project, as well as from the EU STORK project. Leif has more info in his blog.
* Upcoming Meetings*
- CAMP & Advanced CAMP
June 15-19, 2009, Philadelphia PA
"Building blocks of access management" will be the topic for CAMP, including entry level and pragmatic guidance, case studies, requirements, patterns for analysis, and implementation considerations.
Advanced CAMP will follow, and "identity summit" (e.g. the integration of identity models between social networking sites and the campus) will be the topic. Working with the open source community is emerging as a sub-theme. Kuali (Rice/KIM) and JA-SIG are represented on the program committee. ISOC will be sponsoring the reception.
- TERENA Networking Conference 2009 / REFEDs 2009
June 8-11, 2009, Málaga, Spain
July 26-31, 2009, Stockholm, Sweden

- GSA Attribute workshop
September 28-29, 2009, Washington DC
- Fall Internet2 Member Meeting
Oct. 5-8, 2009, San Antonio, TX
- Annual IT conference for DoE labs
Collaboration support was a topic of discussion, including federation and Shibboleth. Tom presented a track session and led a BoF on Shib and InCommon, both of which were well received. There is growing momentum towards labs joining InCommon. Federated SSH appears to be an attractive driver for many researchers. More to come on this as it develops.
- InCommon Future
This work is progressing toward a concluding report, to be delivered to Internet2 and the community as a whole. More to come on this as it develops.
- CAMP Feb 2010?
It is not yet clear whether this will happen. More to come on this as it develops.
- Shib and OpenID
Initial work is under way, and more info will be forthcoming as it is scoped and prioritized. This will be discussed on the Shib-Dev list and conference calls before significant code is developed.
- Coordination on SAML testing, and Liberty
There has been discussion about enabling Shibboleth and SimpleSAMLphp participation, still in the early stages. More to come on this as it develops.
- Second Factor service proposal
A proposal has been submitted to a funding agency, particularly to support national labs and government agencies as well as campuses.
