The primary goal of the NMI-EDIT Consortium, part of the NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI), is to improve the productivity of the research and education community through development, testing, and dissemination of architectures, software, and practices in the areas of identity and access management.
Our development efforts comprise a coordinated set of core middleware tools in the areas of identity and access management architectures, standards for deployments, related directory schemas, and tools. Current major projects include the COmanage collaboration management platform, Grouper groups management toolkit, and the Shibboleth single sign-on and federating software.
NMI-EDIT components are grouped in the following categories:
Software that supports a wider variety of desktop-security, video, and enterprise uses.
