Centralized access management at its finest
InCommon Grouper School
What is Grouper?
The Grouper component offers management of institutional and personal groups, roles, and permissions for use by project managers, departments, institutions, and end users to:
- load institutional cohorts from systems of record
- manage policies centrally for applications
- share roles among multiple collaborative tools
- audit who has access and when
- provision entitlements to LDAP, SAML, messaging, and services.
This two-day session will focus on the InCommon Trusted Access Platform packaged Grouper software with a focus on learning and using core Grouper features to implement the access control models described in the Grouper Deployment Guide. The sessions will include a mix of lectures, hands-on training, and discussion.
The modules start with Grouper basics and progress through new Grouper features, access governance, Grouper security model, and Grouper administration. The session culminates with an access governance practicum that incorporates the InCommon Trusted Access Platform suite of components and provides a “full IAM stack” experience.
The next Grouper workshop will be hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in April 2020. Check back soon for registration details.
