Building Identity Trust Federations Within and Across State Boundaries
Time 04/29/09 07:30AM-08:45AM
State research and education communities increasingly rely upon a growing variety of online interactions that require the support of multiple authentication systems with multiple user-IDs and passwords. This cumbersome and confusing state-of-affairs increases the risk of
fraud, privacy compromise and identity theft.
Using federated identity, the service provider's account management burden is significantly reduced and the security and privacy is increased for the participating campus or state entity.
Participants from the StateNets and US Higher Education Systems communities are invited to join this birds-of-a-feather to discuss topics in building identity trust federations.
