What is InCommon?

Student Success belongs to the InCommon Federation. It is a collection of organizations that have agreed to interoperate using a common set of rules, particularly in the areas of privacy and security. Because of these agreements, federation members do not have to negotiate individually with every other member. Federation members also agree on standard methods for authentication and authorization, using single sign-on technology.
