IAM by and for the Community: The CIFER Initiative

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Monday 3rd June, 2013

1:00pm to 1:45pm (PST)

CIFER (Community Identity Framework for Education and Research) is an ambitious initiative sponsored by Kuali and Internet2 to create and promote a comprehensive, community-based approach to identity and access management (IAM) in higher education. This session provides an overview of CIFER to date. Work has been proceeding in parallel tracks with teams made up of technical and functional experts drawn from Kuali, Internet2 and higher education institutions across North America. Work in progress will be featured from the Identity Registries Team, the Provisioning and Integration Team and the Authentication and Credential Management Team. The presentation will highlight the ways in which CIFER is focused on solutions to real-world campus problems of IAM integration including the challenging tasks of authentication, authorization, provisioning and de-provisioning for cloud services.
