Streamline and Standardize with InCommon and TIER
Internet2 provides the community-built and community-driven trust and identity infrastructure that supports faculty and staff, researchers and scholars, and access to services across the U.S. and globally. Two key components are the InCommon Federation and the TIER (Trust and Identity in Education and Research) software and campus practices.
- Federated identity - SSO for both internal and external applications
- Secure and privacy-preserving interactions
- Shared policy and technology standards
The InCommon Federation provides a standards-driven method for providing single sign-on convenience for scholars, researchers, staff, and students to access local, regional, national, and international resources.
Almost 900 organizations - including more than 550 campuses - use the InCommon Federation for authentication and authorization, with individual using their campus credentials. All organizations agree to common policies and technology to ensure interoperability.
