COmanage: Identity Management and Collaboration Services for Virtual Organizations

Scott Koranda
TrackTrack 2 -- Lecture Hall IV on the Main Floor
DescriptionAs scientific and campus collaborations have discovered, identity management is as important for a virtual organization as it is for a "brick and mortar" institution. Over the past several years, the COmanage project,  funded by the US National Science Foundation and Internet2, has developed a solution for VOs to easily handle their identity management needs.
Layering VO attributes on top of federated identity, COmanage provides customizable enrollment workflows, self service attribute management, and identity lifecycle support via an easy to use, internationalizable interface. COmanage integrates with common identity management components such as Shibboleth, LDAP, and Grouper to facilitate access management, and can be integrated with OpenConext, the open source collaboration platform created by SURFnet.
COmanage is now in production at LIGO, a large international scientific collaboration, and is designed to run as part of a VO's infrastructure or as a hosted service. This session will discuss how COmanage works and how it might be of use in your organization.
