Time 05/17/16 01:15PM-02:30PM
Federations are growing to serve new audiences: K-12, community colleges,
state research and education networks, e-government, and new types of sponsored partners and research organizations. They are also growing globally, with North America and Europe rapidly being joined in eduGAIN by Latin America, Africa and other world regions.
Finally, they are growing in terms of technology, with OpenID connect, distributed credentials, attribute authorities and other aspects. What are the challenges posed by this growth and what are the opportunities we have to tackle them together?
