Internet2 Scalable Privacy project update

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

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

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

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) initiative has a goal of advancing the "vision that individuals and organizations adopt secure, efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable identity credentials to access online services in a way that promotes confidence, privacy, choice and innovation." The Internet2 Scalable Privacy Project (ScalePriv) has received funding from NSTIC to pursue several major thrusts around identity and privacy, including a focus on:

  • Promoting the adoption of Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) across Higher Education institutions.
  • Attribute ecosystem development: Attribute registries, bundles and entity categories.
  • Citizen-Centric Schema.
  • Privacy Manager.
  • Anonymous Credentials.

This session will provide an update on all of the activities happening within those project areas, and on the NSTIC effort in general. The presenter is helping to coordinate many of the project activities within the ScalePriv project.

Mike Grady has expertise in a broad range of higher education IT, with a particularly deep knowledge of both identity management and research cyberinfrastructure. In the fall of 2012, he joined Unicon as a member of its Identity and Access Management (IAM) team, assisting clients with any and all IAM needs, from strategic planning, consulting, implementation and support. A primary focus is on federated identity management; he is actively engaged in the Shibboleth, InCommon, Internet2, and increasingly, the CAS communities.
