Solving Problems: Campuses and Outsourced IdP Technologies

Time 09/26/16 02:30PM-03:20PM

Room Bayfront A

Session Abstract

This panel discussion will cover how campuses solved a particular challenge through the use of a cloud or outsourced identity provider. Instantiating and maintaining a locally-run Shibboleth Identity Provider can be problematic for some institutions. Particular barriers can be technical, infrastructure-related (including not enough staffing and lack of relevant technical skills), or institutional (planning and
governance, including an outsourcing strategy).

In-the-cloud offerings are touching a number of different initiatives. Cloud solutions such as those by Azure, Cirrus, Okta, Unicon, and others offer an alternative to a locally run Shibboleth IdP. With vended products, different issues surface. Panel members will discuss those issues and potential solutions.
