About InCommon

InCommon logo

InCommon grew out of Internet2’s work in trusted access to resources, which has been underway since 1998. In 2000, Internet2 received the first of what would become 10 federal agency awards, with Internet Hall of Fame inductee Ken Klingenstein as principal investigator. The awards include nine from the National Science Foundation and one from the Department of Commerce. This led to the creation of the Internet2 Middleware Initiative, and both Shibboleth and InCommon grew out of that program early on.

InCommon provides integrated service and software solutions for research and education that include single sign-on, access to cloud and local services, and seamless global collaboration for students, faculty, staff, and researchers. InCommon also serves as the U.S. node for the eduroam roaming wi-fi service. For more information, visit
