Attendees will have the chance to see new and advanced demonstrations, examples and “showcase explanations” of work products being generated through the efforts of the TIER Working Group teams.

Community members at the 2017 Global Summit in DC will get a fresh view of the TIER community testing and usability platform, also known as the Demo Workbench. Attendees will have the chance to see new and advanced demonstrations, examples and “showcase explanations” of work products being generated through the efforts of the TIER Working Group teams, including:

  • Provisioning/De-Provisioning Commercial Apps & TIER (for Identity and Access Management architects)
    This demonstration shows how the grouping and authorization principles in the TIER Grouper Deployment Guide can be used to provide role-based access control (RBAC) and automated provisioning and deprovisioning to commercial and cloud applications. This demonstration highlights the modular nature of TIER components, allowing campuses flexibility in deployment.
  • Instrumentation included in the new TIER Release (for everyone)
    Version 1.0 of the TIER Instrumentation specification calls for each TIER container to send a daily “beacon.”  This beacon will contain only product (Shibboleth-IdP/Grouper/COmanage) information and a TIER release identifier.*  This reporting data gives crucial insights to the TIER Investor Community regarding how and where the releases are being deployed so that adoption of deliverables can be directly measured.
  • The new Internet2 TIER Implementation for Community Collaboration (for everyone)
    Internet2 will be drinking the TIER champagne as it implements COmanage and ultimately, Shibboleth and Grouper to support a collaboration platform to seamlessly facilitate community working group management.  The demonstration will highlight initial efforts in our objective to enable Working Group chairs using a self-service interface to set up and manage their group’s use of tools and resources, while reducing the time and effort to manage these workflows.

Consent-informed Attribute Release, funded by an NSTIC grant, is a key part of enabling collaboration among organizations. Providing the individual with the ability to consent to releasing his or her own information may allay stakeholder concerns about data release in the federated context.

  • CAR (Consent-informed Attribute Release) (for CIOs/CISOs)
    Join us to see Duke University’s latest pre-production version that has made substantial progress since the 2016 Internet2 Technology Exchange demo. Once ready for production,  CAR will be included in the TIER packages as an optional component for institutions to use to enable their users to manage release of their own information.
