InCommon BaseCAMP is an introductory workshop providing:

An introduction to the basics of identity and access management  —  whether you manage identities, make resources available to those from other organizations, or both.

An introduction to the InCommon Federation, the U.S. identity federation serving education and research.

An overview and demonstrations of the community-developed identity and access management suite, the InCommon Trusted Access Platform, and the role it can play in your IAM system.

Here are some of the things we'll cover:

Common solutions for enabling collaborator and guest access, student lifecycle management, access to services using groups

Making it easier for your faculty and scholars to collaborate with their remote colleagues.

Finding out about federated access and the InCommon Federation and how to hit the ground running.

Getting help with your identity project.

Open source IAM solutions built specifically for research and education, meeting your IAM and budget requirements

Learning from others and finding folks just like you.
