Identity Management and the Academic & Research Community

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

  • Benjamin Oshrin

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

11:00am to 11:45am (PST)

In complex, decentralized environments like academic and research institutions, identity data is often seen as difficult to acquire and therefore limited to basic information. But high-quality identity data is often available from various sources, and if made available globally, can vastly simplify and improve a wide variety of service offerings. Using various use-case examples, the presenters will discuss methods to acquire this data from systems of record, strategies for managing it, and how it can used to improve the user experiences in applications such as Sakai CLE, library applications, uPortal, Bedework, and Shibboleth.
