Case Studies in Collaboration: Consortial Use of the InCommon Federation

Time 04/22/08 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

More and more state and regional consortiums are looking to share their
scarce resources to make everyone's dollar go a bit further. To do this,
though, requires the management of multiple accounts and passwords and a
staff nightmare that doesn't scale. Federated identity and Shibboleth
System can alleviate this by leveraging local identity systems for
authentication and pass information needed for authorization to the
organization managing the service.

In addition to this technology solution, each institution must have an
understanding that the others in the consortiums are following agreed
upon policies and procedures and not, for instance, handing out accounts
on the street or using personal information for other purposes. These
three legs of technology, policy, and process support the idea of trust
among a collaborative group.

This session will provide case studies of how and why consortiums are
leveraging the InCommon Federation to build and support this trust and
what others can do to start.
