CILogon Supports Sirtfi

CILogon now officially supports the Security Incident Response Trust Framework for Federated Identity (Sirtfi). As part of InCommon's Sirtfi Proof of Concept (see: FAQ), InCommon tagged CILogon as Sirtfi-compliant in federation metadata. Hosted by NCSA at the University of Illinois, CILogon benefits from the operational security and incident response capabilities of NCSA Cybersecurity. CILogon's compliance with Interoperable Global Trust Federation standards helped to prepare for meeting the Sirtfi standards. As a Sirtfi-compliant service provider, CILogon checks for a corresponding tag of Sirtfi-compliance in metadata for identity providers. Visit the eduGAIN Entities Database to see if your identity provider supports Sirtfi. If it does, CILogon thanks you! If not, please don't delay! As always, contact help@cilogon.org for assistance.
