Software Demo: Identity and Access Lifecycle Management

See how the community-developed InCommon Trusted Access Platform can provide solutions for typical work flows, such as onboarding, providing access to resources, and changing or removing that access as a person's role changes.  The demonstration will use a human resources system as an example, showing a streamlined approach to creating an identity and then providing and removing access through the use of groups and roles.

Software Demo: Internet2 Community Guest System Solution

An increasing number of organizations are interested in a guest system - where constituent groups like alumni, pre-college students attending campus, and others can bring their own identities and still be provided access to appropriate resources.  Internet2 had a similar need - providing community members access to collaboration resources.  Using the InCommon Trusted Access Platform software components, Internet2 staff and community members developed a guest system that uses a registry, roles, and groups.  See this system in action and how it might meet your needs.

Speakers: Chris Hubing, Internet2 and Paul Caskey, Internet2
