In-Depth Theme: External Identities

Time 10/17/17 08:00AM-09:50AM

Room Bayview A

Session Abstract

Why do we differentiate digital identities as being “internal” or “external”? Is doing so driven by business need or technical constraints, or both? Identity federations like InCommon, eduGAIN, and eduroam are powerful tools for providing access to resources across organizations. But what's a campus or research organization to do about providing access to resources that aren't readily federated? A network share? A desktop computer? A building door? This in-depth session will explore use cases, practices, and activities in the research and education community focused on solutions for external identities. Attendees will gain insights into how campuses, research organizations, and national and international working groups are shifting external identity architectures toward more choice and inclusion, while maintaining appropriate control and security. Demos and discussion will focus on understanding these solutions, and their benefits and impact.
