Research & Scholarship Category (R&S)

The R&S Category includes service providers that support research and scholarly activities such as virtual organizations and campus-based collaboration services. Participating Identity Providers agree to release a small set of attributes to the category. As of January 24, there are:

  • 94 Service Providers in the category
  • 91 Identity Providers supporting the international REFEDS R&S category
  • 79 Identity Providers in the legacy InCommon-only category (releasing attributes only to SPs registered by InCommon)


There are 83 InCommon identity providers that have declared compliance with SIRTFI (Security Incident Response Trust Framework for Federated Identity), up from 79 in November. Compliance means agreeing to a baseline set of security practices and including a security contact in metadata. Since security contacts are required in metadata, Identity Providers are encouraged to take the extra step and self-assert SIRTFI.
