      Peer Review of REFEDS Assurance Adoption 50m

      The REFEDS Assurance WG looks to TAGPMA and IGTF for practical experience on doing peer reviews related to assurance, so let's show them how it's done. XSEDE, Fermilab, and Brookhaven have each implemented the Cappuccino profile from the REFEDS Assurance Framework ( for use with the CILogon Silver CA ( Jim Basney will make a REFEDS Assurance self-assessment spreadsheet like we typically use in IGTF, fill it in for the XSEDE IdP (since he was involved in the Cappuccino implementation for the XSEDE IdP), and present the results during the meeting. It'd be great for Fermilab and Brookhaven (and anyone else?) to also present their self-assessments for comparison. Then after the meeting we can report back to the REFEDS Assurance WG about it.

      Speakers: Dr Jeny Teheran (Fermilab), Mr Jim Basney (National Center for Supercomputing Applications), Dr Mine Altunay (Fermilab)
