Executive Summary: A service provider needs to configure a service to allow or require a high-assurance X.509 certificate for user access so that the user authentication process is assured to satisfy the IGTF “MICS/BIRCH” level of assurance.
This use case is fully supported by the CILogon service, specifically its Silver CA and related documentation. No further effort is required at this time.
