The Internet2 and InCommon trust and identity community reached some key goals during 2017, thanks to the work of dozens of community members participating in working groups, governance and advisory committees, and software and service development.

To document this work, the Internet2 Trust and Identity division has published 2017 Trust and Identity Accomplishments. The report discusses the three overarching themes for 2017: support for research and academic collaboration, maturing the delivery of software and services, and expanding and enhancing community trust. 

The report covers InCommon, particularly support for collaboration and improving the user experience; the TIER IAM suite of software and containerizing the components; and new features for the InCommon Certificate Service and improved business process for the eduroam federated wi-fi service.

The report is available from both the Internet2 Trust & Identity Services and InCommon websites.
