UK’s InCommon Membership

POSTED: JULY 25, 2012

For several months now, UK has been a member of InCommon: a coalition of US education and research communities supporting a common federated identity management framework. This framework permits UK faculty and researchers to log in to certain information resources without having to obtain a user ID and password for each resource. Instead, they log in using their LinkBlue account and password.

As a result, UK faculty and researchers can access the following websites and resources and authenticate using their UK LinkBlue account and password:

1. TeraGrid, https://go.teragrid.org/
2. Research.gov, https://research.gov/
3. EDUCAUSE, http://www.educause/edu/, and
4. DMPTool (Data Management Plan Tool), https://dmp.cdlib.org/
